Description: 

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service 2021 Tribal Wildlife Grants Program. Deadline: June 18, 2021. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is pleased to announce the availability of funding through the Tribal Wildlife Grants (TWG) Program.  The TWG Program was created to support the development and implementation of programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitats and species of Tribal cultural or traditional importance, including species that are not hunted or fished. The TWG Program provides opportunities for federally recognized Tribes to engage in fish and wildlife conservation efforts on their lands, many of which are located adjacent to DOI- managed lands. Many of the TWG Program-funded project activities increase fish and wildlife populations, allowing for hunting and fishing opportunities on and off Tribal lands. Additionally, the TWG Program also funds project activities that align and assist the Service with Endangered Species Act (ESA) activities supporting downlisting, delisting, and preventing species listing under the ESA.  Estimated Total Program Funding:   $6,000,000; Award Ceiling: $200,000; Award Floor: $10,000. Eligible Applicants: Federally recognized tribal governments. For more information, visit: https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=332220.
