Another opportunity to apply for Oregon Conservation Strategy Implementation Grants
 
May 3, 2011

 

SALEM, Ore — Applications for Oregon Conservation Strategy Implementation Grants will be accepted by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife from May 4, 2011 through June 15, 2011. A first request for proposal closed March 21, 2011. To be eligible for a grant, proposed projects must focus on actions that benefit species and habitats as outlined in the Oregon Conservation Strategy.

Approximately $370,000 is available through the federal State Wildlife Grants program. Individual grants will be awarded in amounts between $10,000 and $100,000, depending on the grant category. Private non-profit organizations, educational institutions, and state and local agencies may apply. Federal agencies are not eligible.

New application materials are available on the Conservation Strategy section of the ODFW website. For information on the grant application process, contact Peter Moore, (503) 947-6316, or Art Martin, (503) 947-6082.

State Wildlife Grants were created by Congress to provide a proactive approach to conservation with the intent of preventing species from declining to the point of qualifying as threatened or endangered. The Oregon Conservation Strategy grew from congressional requirements to ensure that State Wildlife Grants were spent in a prioritized, strategic manner to increase effectiveness and efficiency of conservation efforts.

About the Oregon Conservation Strategy

The Oregon Conservation Strategy creates a vision for long-term conservation of Oregon’s native fish and wildlife. It identifies how all Oregonians can become involved through a non-regulatory, proactive, statewide approach to conservation. With ODFW’s leadership, the Conservation Strategy is currently being implemented by a wide range of landowners, biologists, conservationists, agency personnel, hunters, anglers and other interested citizens. For information on the Oregon Conservation Strategy, visit the ODFW website.
