Urban Treaty: THERE IS NO FULL ANNOUCNEMENT ASSOICATED WITH THIS OPPORTUNITY. THIS IS A NOTICE OF INTENT TO AWARD. The US Fish and Wildlife Service, Headquarters Region 5 intends to award one single source Grant Agreement for support of the Urban Conservation Treaty for Migratory Birds. One award will be granted to the City of Hartford. This notice is not a request for proposals and the Government does not intend to accept proposals. The intent of this Grant Notice is for informational purposes only. There is no full announcement associated with this notice of Single Source award. PURPOSE: The purpose of the proposed agreements is to support projects in the named cities to restore habitat, minimize hazards, monitor local areas for birds, and educate the public about the needs of birds and the importance of urban areas to migratory bird conservation. The public will learn about different types of habitats needed by birds and the issues birds face locally. BACKGROUND: The Urban Conservation Treaty for Migratory Birds was initiated in 1999 to create and/or enhance partnerships within U.S. cities to focus on migratory bird conservation. Hartford was selected as an Urban Treaty City in 2011 and would receive new funds to revitalize the program. Long-range components would be built into each treaty so that after the initial Service dollars are spent, each city will have institutionalized its commitment to migratory birds and continue to factor their needs into city plans and actions. REASON FOR SINGLE SOURCE: (1) Unique Qualifications The City of Hartford met criteria which preclude competition for this grant agreement, including property ownership, technical expertise, cost-sharing, and support capacity.
