Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants to California nonprofit organizations, Tribes, and landowners for programs and projects that will benefit upland game bird populations and their habitats. Eligible proposals will ensure that sustainable populations of these species persist in perpetuity in order to provide continued hunting opportunities and other public uses.

The objective of the Upland Game Bird Account Grant Program (UGBAGP) is to implement projects which benefit upland game bird populations and the habitats upon which they depend with the goal of ensuring that sustainable populations of these species persist in perpetuity in order to provide continued hunting opportunity and other public uses. The UGBAGP will accomplish this by funding:

  • Projects and activities that provide demonstrable and measurable benefits to upland game species by increasing the quality and/or quantity of available habitats;
  • Projects which increase knowledge and understanding of the scope and impact of inter-specific competition, predation, and disease;
  • Projects which increase the understanding of population dynamics, distribution, and habitat selection;
  • Projects which increase the accuracy, precision, and efficiency of population surveys;
  • Projects which increase hunting opportunity;
  • Projects which increase the ability to detect and apprehend those involved in illegal hunting activities;
  • Projects which broaden the knowledge and understanding of stakeholder expectations.
