Competitive State Wildlife Grants Program: Congress established the SWG Competitive Grant Program (SWG-C) in 2008 through Public Law 110-161. This nationally-competitive program provides a resource to implement or enhance the State Wildlife Action Plans (SWAPs), with a special focus on promoting and advancing cooperative partnerships that result in large-scale landscape conservation. SWG Competitive Grant Program applications must address: (a) eligible actions identified in U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service-approved SWAPs; (b) emerging issues (such as climate change effects on species of greatest conservation need) that are adequately documented in the grant application and that propose to improve the status of such species and their habitats; or, (c) improvements to SWAPs that meet one or more of the themes described in Section IV.F. of the full application instructions.
