Selected projects should endeavor to leverage funds with local industries and community organizations to conduct on-the-ground projects that support shared conservation goals and reduced barriers to outdoor recreation.Project funding is generally limited to less than $50,000. Higher amounts may be requested, but may not be awarded without appropriate justification and approval. The period of performance for the majority of projects funded under this program is one to three years but may extend to five years. This program uses cooperative agreements as the primary funding instrument. Projects are often developed or modified in coordination with recipients and implemented with substantial involvement from HQ NWRS staff. Past and present recipients of awards under this program are eligible to apply but must submit new projects to compete for funding each year. This opportunity is open to non-profit, for profit, Native American tribal governments, state, county, city or township, and special district organizations with the interest and capacity to work collaboratively with HQ NWRS to identify, conserve, manage and enhance the physical and ecological infrastructure of the NWRS; deliver public access and high-quality recreational opportunities; build a volunteer cadre, and inspire the next generation of hunters, anglers and wildlife enthusiasts through work on and off NWRS managed lands and waters.Cost sharing or matching is not mandatory but is encouraged as a method of leveraging funding through public-private ventures.Applications submitted under this grant program will be posted by HQ NWRS to an internal website and made available for review.
