The Association of Fish & Wildlife Agencies is currently soliciting Letters of Intent for the 2017 Multistate Conservation Grant Program (MSCGP). Up to $6 million dollars is available each calendar year for projects that address regional- or national-level priorities of the state fish and wildlife agencies through the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program.
Letters of Intent (LOI) must address one or more of the 12 MSCGP National Conservation Needs for 2017 that were recently selected by state fish and wildlife agency directors at the North American Wildlife and Natural Resources Conference in March 2016.
Letters of Intent will be evaluated based on responsiveness to the National Conservation Needs; scientific quality; practical relevance to state agencies; value; and qualifications. Grants are awarded on a calendar-year basis for one, two or three years to eligible recipients.
Please read the full Solicitation Notice and Submission Guidelines for details.
LOIs must be submitted electronically in Microsoft Word format to the MSCGP Coordinator no later than 5:00pm (Eastern Time) on Friday, May 6, 2016. The National Grants Committee and appropriate AFWA committees will review and evaluate the LOIs. In June, the National Grants Committee will invite the applicants with the most competitive LOIs to submit a full grant proposal for consideration.
