USFWS Region 6 Challenge Cost Share Program: Share (CCS) program for the eight states of the region, Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Utah. The Mountain - Prairie Region invites the submission of proposals in support of natural resource management, emphasizing the inventory and control of invasive species, habitat restoration, and conservation outreach opportunities. These proposals are accomplished in partnership with a USFWS field office such as a National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) or a Partner for Fish & Wildlife office. Successful joint applicants will have at least 50% of project costs covered by non-federal resources. This is the initial announcement for these funding opportunities. The CCS program is an annual funding source set up on the federal fiscal year schedule; however, partnerships can and should be developed through the year as shared conservation projects are identified. Proposals are submitted under the latest guidance posted on the Region 6 Challenge Cost Share website. Proposals must be developed in partnership with a Region 6 field office and sent by the partnering USFWS office to the Mountain - Prairie Challenge Cost Share coordinator (contact information below). For more information about this "call for proposals" or for information on local contacts in your area, please contact: James Graves, Region 6 Challenge Cost Share Coordinator, (303) 236-4376 (phone) or e-mail at For detailed information about the application process and example templates, go to
