Nevada Challenge Cost Share Program FY2012: The Challenge Cost Share (CCS) Program was first implemented in 1985 when Congress appropriated money within the wildlife program for partnership conservation projects. Since then the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has expanded this cost-share program to include other resource programs with partnership opportunities. The CCS program now funds the following kinds of activities: research, monitoring and inventory of resources; implementation of habitat improvement projects, protection or documentation of cultural resources; providing for enhanced recreational experiences; development and implementation of species conservation and recovery plans; environmental education; conservation projects for native plant communities and eradication of noxious and other weeds. In Nevada, the program is managed to maintain a variety of partnerships for wildlife, recreation, cultural resources, and native plant community conservation including rare plants, fisheries, and riparian habitat at the local level. Partnership contributions are required with a 50:50 overall cost share with non-federal dollars. Nevada BLM cost share will not exceed $50,000 per project annually. Multiple year projects up to but not exceeding 5 years are acceptable The objective of the Nevada CCS program is to have a cost effective, local-level cost share program with non-federal partners to implement conservation or other public land management projects for the good of the general public and public resources, including but not limited to, recreation, fish, wildlife, special status plants, water quality, cultural sites and historical trails. The projects listed below are approved for FY 2012. New proposals are being accepted for FY 2013 and FY 2014 see section D of full annoncement.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Cost-share projects submitted under this program will be developed in coordination with local BLM office staff. For example, potential partners interested in a wildlife habitat project should contact the wildlife biologist in the appropriate field office or district. If a potential partner is interested in protecting a local cultural site then the appropriate field office or district archeologist should be contacted. If a potential partner is interested in a project with state-wide implications than the appropriate program leaders at the Nevada State Office should be contacted. Assistance in locating the appropriate BLM contact will also be provided by writing to Bryan Hockett, Partnership Coordinator at the Nevada State Office at b50hocke@blm.gov Partners can match BLM funds in a variety of ways: -The non-federal match may include cash; in-kind goods, services or labor; or project materials. -Applicants should use local rates for other in-kind valuation of contributions (equipment operators, equipment use, professor salaries). -The match will be explained in the project proposal and listed on the budget attachment. The cost share requirement overall is non-federal partners are expected to match BLM CCS funds at or near 1:1 for their respective projects. If there is more than one non-federal partner for a project than their total contribution can be combined to meet the 1:1 cost share goal. If more than one project is funded with the same partner than the 1:1 match would apply to the total for all of the cooperative projects that fiscal year. Non-federal partners are expected to match Nevada BLM CCS funds at or near 1:1 for their respective projects. Only non-federal funds can be used to match BLM CCS funds. If there is more than one non-federal partner for a project than their total contribution can be combined to meet the 1:1 cost share goal. If more than one project is funded with the same partner than the 1:1 match would apply to the total for all of the cooperative projects that fiscal year.
