The Western Native Trout Initiative Small Grants Funding Program
The purpose of the Western Native Trout Initiative’s Small Grants Program is to provide a source of funding to organizations that desire to become involved in the conservation – protection, restoration or enhancement – of western native trout at the local level. The small project funding program specifically supports collaborative approaches and partnerships involved in local efforts or community-based programs that provide for habitat, educational or public recreational angling programs that contribute to the Initiative’s efforts to conserve western native trout.
Projects considered for funding under the Small Grants Program may include riparian or in-stream habitat restoration, barrier removal or construction, population or watershed assessments needed for prioritization and planning, water leases or acquisitions to improve in-stream flows, and native trout community outreach and education. Individual projects can be funded at a maximum of $3,000.
The 2015 Request for Proposals for small grants is available here. Grant proposals are due by June 19, 2015.
