Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and territories tribal governments for environmental conservation programs. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funds are intended to support activities that preserve native animal populations and their natural habitats, including those of Native American traditional and cultural significance. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to, surveys, public education, natural history studies, laboratory research, and monitoring.

The Tribal Wildlife Grants (TWG) Program was created to support the development and implementation of programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitats and species of Tribal cultural or traditional importance, including species that are not hunted or fished.

The TWG Program provides opportunities for federally recognized Tribes to engage in fish and wildlife conservation efforts on their lands, many of which are located adjacent to DOI- managed lands. Many of the TWG Program-funded project activities increase fish and wildlife populations, allowing for hunting and fishing opportunities on and off Tribal lands. Additionally, the TWG Program funds project activities that align and assist the Service with Endangered Species Act (ESA) activities supporting downlisting, delisting, and preventing new species listings under the ESA.

Eligible projects include those that initiate, develop or implement activities or programs that benefit wildlife and their habitat, including species of Native American cultural or traditional importance and species that are not hunted or fished. Activities may include, but are not limited to:

  •  Planning for conservation of fish and wildlife, and their habitats
  •  Conservation management actions for fish and wildlife, and their habitats
  •  Field and laboratory research related to fish and wildlife resources
  •  Natural history studies
  •  Fish passage
  •  Habitat mapping or evaluation
  •  Field surveys and population monitoring
  •  Restoration of habitat
  •  Management of invasive species
  •  Public education relevant to the proposed project
