Grants to Colorado nonprofit organizations, government agencies, conservation organizations, academic institutions, schools, and businesses for education and research projects related to the State's protected wildlife. Funding is intended to promote the conservation of local wildlife species and their habitats.

It should be noted that the LWF will consider projects focused on any of the state’s non-game wildlife – i.e., any of the approximately 750 species of wildlife that cannot be hunted, fished or trapped or the habitat on which they depend in Colorado.


  1. The LWF intends to serve as a catalyst for and to partner with other organizations (conservation organizations, other nonprofit organizations, government agencies, academic institutions/schools, businesses, and others) promoting Colorado wildlife research and education projects. Projects with multiple partners are preferred. The LWF expects that most projects will focus predominantly on either research or education, but is particularly interested in proposals that include some elements of both.
  2. One purpose of LWF grants is to encourage initiation of targeted projects. As part of this start-up, the grantee is expected to provide leadership and coordination to obtain additional funding and to involve others.
  3. The grantee must also make every effort to disseminate information on the project and on the results of the research to as wide an audience as possible and must make three reports to the LWF.
