Wildlife Conservation Grants: Call for Proposals
The Wildlife Diversity Program is offering grants to support implementation of the 2012 Texas Conservation Action Plan (TCAP), to prevent the need to list, promote recovery and enable conservation of rare species and communities in greatest need. For other wildlife-related grant opportunities, visit TPWD Grants and Assistance.
Proposals following the guidelines below will be accepted through December 3, 2012, 5:00 PM CST. To be considered for the award, proposal must be received by the deadline electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org. A PDF of this call for proposals and guidelines for submittal can be downloaded below. A set of specific funding priorities have been established for various taxa. Proposals that significantly address the needs of TCAP Species of Greatest Need and Rare Plant Communities (other than those detailed by taxa below) or a listed Conservation Action found in one or more of the Ecoregion Handbooks will also be considered.
TCAP implementation activities and these conservation grants will be part of a larger effort to track our incremental conservation progress and report out to our partners and the public how we are doing. To that end, the toolkit in Measuring the Effectiveness of State Wildlife Grants is strongly recommended to define conservation projects, target audiences and partners, identify desired step-wise intermediate results, and collect the “right” data to report conservation achievements.
A total of 14 proposals were submitted during this funding period. These proposals are now being evaluated and final determinations will be made soon.
