U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Seeks Applications for Tribal Wildlife Grants

Today, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service issued a request for grant
proposals from federally recognized Tribes for projects that will conserve
fish and wildlife resources on tribal lands. The Tribal Wildlife Grants
program funds projects on a competitive basis that benefit habitat, fish and
wildlife, including species that are not hunted or fished. This grant
request is for fiscal year 2010.

Proposals and grant applications must be postmarked by September 1, 2009.
The maximum award for any one project under this program is $200,000. For
more information and to obtain a copy of the grant application kit, or to
find a regional Tribal grants contact, please visit Additional information about this and
other grant programs is available at

In FY 2009, the Tribal Wildlife Grant program awarded nearly $7 million to
41 Tribes for projects ranging from comprehensive surveys of plants, fish
and wildlife, to habitat and fish restoration, to development of new
resource management plans and techniques.

The Tribal Wildlife Grants program began in 2003 and has provided a total of
more than $50 million to hundreds of tribes across the nation, enabling them
to develop increased management capacity, improve and enhance relationships
with partners, address cultural and environmental priorities and heighten
interest of tribal students in fisheries, wildlife and related fields of
study. A comprehensive report on projects awarded between 2003 and 2006 is
available at

The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others to
conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats for
the continuing benefit of the American people. We are both a leader and
trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our scientific
excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated
professionals and commitment to public service. For more information on our
work and the people who make it happen, visit
