Description
The Grants to Wildlife Rehabilitators Project helps support licensed wildlife rehabilitators by compensating them for care of sick and injured wildlife. Expenditures permitted under this program must relate specifically to wildlife rehabilitation and may include reimbursement for diagnostic and lab support services, purchase and maintenance of proper restraints and equipment used in the capture, transportation, temporary housing, and release of wildlife, reimbursement of contracted veterinary services,  reimbursement of the cost of food, medication, and other consumables, construction costs, and continuing education. Funds may not be used to rehabilitate either non-native species or nuisance animals and may not be used for salaries and wages.

Funds that support the Grants to Wildlife Rehabilitators Project come from a portion of the revenue from personalized license plate sales.

RFP’s will be announced on this web page. Funding is granted on a fiscal biennium basis and the contracts are for a term of two years. There is no matching funds requirement. Applicants may submit only one request every two years and must reside in the WDFW administrative region for which they have applied.

Eligible grant recipients include Washington residents properly licensed in wildlife rehabilitation under Washington state and federal law. A 501(c)(3) tax exempt non-profit status is not a requirement. Grants to Wildlife Rehabilitators is a Direct Application therefore no Letter of Inquiry is required for initial contact.
