Grants to Colorado agencies, non-profits, businesses, individuals, and others in areas that have habitat committees, for large scale projects to improve foraging and habitat for livestock, big game animals, other wildlife, private land owners, and land managers. Eligible projects include the use of mechanical and chemical tools to improve habitat and forage resources, brush manipulation, weed control, water development, and other measures.

Specifically, habitat improvement projects include using mechanical and chemical tools to improve and increase available habitat and forage. Typical habitat improvement projects done by HPP include brush manipulation (hydroaxing, roller chopping, Lawson aerating, burning, etc), weed control using biological and chemical means, water developments (maintaining existing water sources and developing new ones), fertilizing and reseeding.

Projects must provide for monitoring using an appropriate technique(s) to demonstrate success or failure of the treatment.

Projects with multiple partners will be given priority and a greater match amount from HPP over those with no/fewer partners. Letters from partners showing a commitment to the project if approved should be included with the application.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Projects must be located within an area that has an existing HPP committee.

Pre-Application Information:

Applicants are encouraged to contact Pat Tucker to discuss their project prior to applying for this grant.

HPP committees must be in support of the project and provide a letter to that effect. Priority will be given to those applications that have the monetary support of their committee. A letter from the local committee should be included with your application. Due to the variability of local HPP committee meetings, applicants are encouraged to contact their local HPP committee early in the process so that this support can be obtained. Failure to have written support from the local HPP committee will result in the project being disqualified.

Project Matches: Project applications must have at least a 50% cash match from non HPP sources. Landowners/Land Managers are required to participate financially. Match credit will not be given for in progress or completed projects. Projects with a greater amount of match money will be given priority and a greater match amount from HPP over projects with less match money.

Special Note for Burning and Weed Control Applications:

a. Due to the uncertainty of burn windows in any given year, applicants are discouraged from submitting burn projects for this grant. However, HPP is supportive of burn projects in general and funding is available from local committees and the state council for them.

b. Due to the persistent nature of weeds and the multiyear efforts needed for successful control, applicants proposing to do weed control must also provide information and commitment for an additional 3 years of follow up weed control treatment.
