State Wildlife Grants Program provides funding to every state and
territory to support cost effective conservation
aimed at keeping wildlife from becoming endangered. It is designed
to assist states by providing federal funds for the development and
implementation of programs that benefit wildlife and their habitat,
including species that are not hunted or fished.
In order to receive
federal funds through this program, states and territories are
to develop a state Comprehensive Wildlife
Conservation Strategy. These strategies outline species and habitat
priorities, and the actions that need to be taken to conserve them.
Currently, none of these funds are available for pass-through to
external entities. However, this may change as the CWCS is implemented
for cases where external entities could more efficiently carry out
conservation action priorities. The development of implementation
priorities is currently underway and will involve agency staff, non-governmental
organizations, and other conservation partners.
