The Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) is inviting grant proposals for multi-benefit climate adaptation and resiliency projects that protect, restore or enhance migratory bird habitat associated with the Pacific Flyway. These projects should seek to protect, restore or enhance migratory bird habitat, improve migratory bird habitat diversity, quality and connectivity, or improve management and ecological function of migratory bird habitat.
The WCB is an independent state board with the authority to carry out programs that benefit wildlife conservation in California (California Fish and Game Code 1300, et seq.). WCB’s three main conservation functions are land acquisition, habitat restoration, and development of wildlife-oriented public access facilities. WCB promotes this work through many conservation programs.
In June 2018, voters passed the California Drought, Water, Parks, Climate, Coastal Protection, and Outdoor Access for All Act of 2018 (Proposition 68) which identified a need for climate adaptation and resiliency projects. Among other things, Proposition 68 made available not less than $20 million for WCB to advance “…the acquisition, development, rehabilitation, restoration, protection, and expansion of wildlife corridors and open space to improve connectivity and reduce barriers between habitat areas and to protect and restore habitat associated with the Pacific Flyway.” (PRC 80132c).
- Public Agency
- Tribal Government
Nonprofit organizations and public agencies (state, local and federal) are eligible to submit grant proposals in response to this PSN.
Projects should be consistent with and seek to implement habitat and/or species conservation objectives of one of the five North American Migratory Bird Joint Ventures located within the State of California.
Matching Funding Requirement:
Cost share is the portion of the project cost not funded by the WCB and is provided by the applicant and/or other sources (private companies, NGO's, public agencies, and/or other entities). A list of all cost share sources must be detailed in the budget worksheets. Proposals with higher proportions of secured cost share contribution towards total project cost will score more points through the “Cost Share” proposal evaluation criterion.
