Alaska's National Wildlife Refuge System FY08: The Department of the Interior, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service), National Wildlife Refuge System, administers the Services Challenge Cost Share program. Congress authorized funding for the CCS program in 1988. The Refuge System Administration Act authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to administer this program. Challenge Cost Share (CCS) funds are congressionally appropriated monies designated for the protection and conservation of wildlife resources. This is a federal matching funds program which leverages federal dollars with non-federal sources. In addition to money, these federal dollars can be matched with in-kind valuation assigned to non-federal contributions such as labor, equipment use, material and supplies. The non-federal matches may be contributed by State and local governments, private individuals, private organizations, business enterprises, and charitable groups. Service policy dictates that no more than 50 percent of the total cost to implement the project may come from federally funded sources. The CCS program encompasses awards made through both federal assistance (grants and cooperative agreements) and procurement instruments (contracts). This "call for proposals" is the single designated annual competition posted both through the federal financial assistance portal, www.grants.gov and through a twin posting of this call for proposals # 701818R007 posted on http://www.fedbizopps.gov. Multiple awards may be made under either announcement. The Alaska National Wildlife Refuge System invites the submission of new proposals in support of Alaskan natural resource management and science camps, both as components of the 2008 CCS program. A few proposals will also be accepted for the winter (October through February) of Fiscal Year 2009. Project proposals must demonstrate a strong relationship between a non-federal group and an Alaskan U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office. This is the initial announcement for this funding opportunity. The CCS program is an annual funding source set up on the federal fiscal year schedule; therefore, the objectives and work identified in the proposals selected for award under this announcement must be completed no later than September 30, 2008. Proposals must be delivered to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Office at 1011 East Tudor Road, Anchorage, AK by 4:00 PM on December 18, 2007. Proposals may be mailed to the address below and must display a postmark earlier than December 18, 2007: Maeve Taylor Challenge Cost Share Coordinator Alaskas National Wildlife Refuge System 1011 East Tudor Road, MS#235 Anchorage, AK 99503 Projects will be considered on or in the proximity of all 16 National Wildlife Refuges in Alaska.
