Grants to California nonprofit organizations 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 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 our 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 our ability to detect and apprehend those involved in illegal hunting activities;

-Projects which broaden our knowledge and understanding of stakeholder expectations.

A total of up to $350,000 of Upland Game Bird Account (UGBA) funds will be available for grants under this Proposal Solicitation Notice (PSN). There is no project funding cap or restriction on single-year projects for grants awarded from this fund in FY 16/17.
