RFP For Great Lakes Fish & Wildlife Restoration Projects

Nov 1: The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS or Service) is accepting project proposals to protect, restore and enhance Great Lakes fish and wildlife habitat under the Great Lakes Fish and Wildlife Restoration Act (Act). The Service requests interested entities to submit restoration, research and regional project proposals for the restoration of Great Lakes fish and wildlife resources, as authorized under the Act (16 USC 941c). The purpose of the Act is to provide assistance to states, tribes, and other interested entities to encourage cooperative conservation, restoration and management of the fish and wildlife resources and their habitats in the Great Lakes Basin. The deadline for proposal submission is Monday, December 17, 2012.

    Supported in part by the Great Lakes Restoration Initiative (GLRI), approximately $2 million in funding is projected to support projects this fiscal year. Available funding and project awards are subject to final Congressional appropriations for fiscal year 2013. Project funding is available to support Great Lakes Basin restoration, research and regional projects. Local watershed associations, municipalities, tribes, states and non-governmental organizations are encouraged to apply. All project proposals will be compiled, reviewed and ranked by the Proposal Review Committee, and final funding decisions will be made by the Service in the summer of 2013.
