U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services: Seeking Applications for Canada Standard Grants Program

Deadline: 24 August 2018

The Canada Standard Grants Program, a matching grant program, is currently open for applications to support public-private partnerships carrying out wetlands conservation projects in Canada.

Their projects contribute to a comprehensive, programmatic approach towards furthering the goals of the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA). Project activities involve the long-term conservation of wetlands and associated upland habitats for the benefit of waterfowl and all wetland-associated migratory birds.

The Canada Standard Grants Program began supporting projects in Canada in 1990, shortly after the North American Wetlands Conservation Act of 1989 was passed. This program has been receiving 45 percent of the total available funding for Act-supported projects each fiscal year. In recent years, this amount has been approximately USD$20-25 million annually.

Objectives

Grant and matching funds support a wide range of conservation activities in Canada, including projects aiming to:

  • protect, restore, or enhance wetlands and other migratory bird habitats throughout the country;
  • permanently secure habitat for birds and other wetland-dependent species, particularly high priority waterfowl;
  • manage wetland ecosystems and conduct complementary conservation activities such as stewardship, evaluation, and communications;
  • encourage partnerships among public agencies and other organizations as valuable mechanisms for wetland conservation; and
  • promote sustainable use of wetlands, waterfowl, and other wetland dependent species.

How to Apply

Interested applicants must submit proposals in a prescribed format, online via given website.
