Description

The Fish and Wildlife Service has posted a grant opportunity titled "F25AS00007 Multistate Conservation Grant Program Announcement". This grant falls under the category of Natural Resources and is a discretionary grant. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The grant is authorized under 16 U.S.C. 669h-2 and 16 U.S.C. 777m and provides funding for wildlife restoration and sport fish restoration projects, as well as recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) projects. These projects address regional or national priority needs of State fish and wildlife agencies and their partners that are beyond the capabilities of a single State. The priority needs, known as Strategic Priorities, are identified annually by the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) with input from State fish and wildlife agencies and their partners.

The eligible applicants for this grant include the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, State governments, and groups of States. State governments refer to agencies with lead management responsibility for fish and wildlife resources in each of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, Commonwealths of Puerto Rico and the Northern Mariana Islands, and the territories of American Samoa, Guam, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, or a group of these agencies.

The grant funds can be used for wildlife or sport fish projects involving research, restoration, conservation, and management of wild birds, wild mammals, sport fish, and their habitats. The funds can also be used for projects that provide public use and benefit from these resources, including hunter safety and education, aquatic education, angler R3 projects, and other purposes consistent with the enabling legislation.

There is an award ceiling of $1,000,000 and an award floor of $50,000. The estimated total program funding is $11,000,000. The grant proposal must be submitted through the AFWA MSCGP Portal by June 7, 2024, no later than 11:59 PM ET. If the proposal is selected for further consideration, the applicant will be invited via email by early to mid-September 2024 to submit a complete grant application through a Directed Announcement posted in GrantSolutions.gov. The complete grant application should include a project statement, budget narrative, budget table, and federal forms. Only invited proposals will submit complete grant applications in GrantSolutions. The deadline for submitting a complete grant application in GrantSolutions will be identified in the Directed Announcement. Proposals should not be submitted in Grants.gov.
