Fish & Wildlife Service Seeks Applications for Wetland Restoration Projects

The U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service is accepting applications for its annual Standard Grants Program.

The annual matching grants program supports public-private partnerships dedicated to carrying out projects in Canada, the United States, and Mexico. These projects must involve the long-term protection, restoration, and/or enhancement of wetlands and associated uplands habitats. In Mexico, projects may also include technical training, environmental education and outreach, organizational infrastructure development, and sustainable-use studies.

From September 1990 through April 2016, some 4,300 partners affiliated with 1,894 projects received more than $1.4 billion in grants and contributed another $2.8 billion in matching funds to protect, restore, and/or enhance some 33.1 million acres of habitat.

As in the past, grant amounts will be considered on a project-by-project basis, and application deadlines will vary by country. Applications for projects initiated in the United States must be received no later than July 14, 2017. Applications for Canadian- and Mexican-based projects must be received by June 30, 2017.

See the Fish & Wildlife Service website for a complete program description and application guidelines.
