Grants to USA and Territories state-level government agencies for the preservation of endangered and threatened wildlife living on privately-owned lands. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended for management, research, monitoring, and outreach activities, or any combination thereof.
The principal objective of the Traditional Conservation Grant program is to support the development and implementation of States’ programs to conserve and recover threatened and endangered species under the Service’s jurisdiction. Financial assistance, provided in the form of grants, can be used to support projects that have direct conservation benefits for federally listed species, candidate and at-risk species, and recently delisted species. States may apply for funding to conduct work on federally listed resident species that are included in the State’s cooperative agreement. States may also apply for funding to monitor candidate, at-risk, and recently delisted species. Candidate Species are those that the Service determined warrant listing as a threatened or endangered species, but the listing is precluded by other higher priority actions.
For the purposes of this Notice of Funding Opportunity, we are considering certain “at-risk” species in addition to Candidate Species: 1) those species that are the subject of a positive 90-day finding but not yet the subject of a proposed rule, 2) species that are the subject of a proposed listing rule but not a final rule or 3) species for which the Service has initiated an ESA status review and has announced the review in the Federal Register, and 4) species included on the National Listing Work Plan. A full list of at-risk species can be found in Attachment A. Further, recently delisted, for purposes of this solicitation, are those species delisted within the past five years. Only species delisted due to recovery may receive funding under this solicitation.
Proposals should include clear and specific information about how the proposed work would contribute to species recovery or prevent the need to list a species under the ESA. Successful applications will be those that clearly demonstrate a direct conservation benefit to the species or its habitat.
Eligible activities may include, but are not limited to:
