The Service is asking states to submit grant proposals for conservation projects that aid our most imperiled species. The grants are distributed under the Service's Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund, authorized under Section 6 of the Endangered Species Act, which provides grants to help conserve listed species and species that are candidates for listing under the act. For fiscal year 2015, the President's budget requests $50 million in grant funding.
