Tribal Wildlife Grants
Goal of the Tribal Wildlife Grant Program:
Provide a competitive funding opportunity for Federally recognized Tribal governments to develop and implement programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitat, including species of Native American cultural or traditional importance and species that are not hunted or fished.
Tribal Wildlife Grants are used to provide technical and financial assistance to Tribes for the development and implementation of programs that benefit fish and wildlife resources and their habitat. Activities may include, but are not limited to, planning for wildlife and habitat conservation, fish and wildlife conservation and management actions, fish and wildlife related laboratory and field research, natural history studies, habitat mapping, field surveys and population monitoring, habitat preservation, conservation easements, and public education that is relevant to the project. The funds may be used for salaries, equipment, consultant services, subcontracts, acquisitions and travel.

More than $60 million has gone to Native American tribes through the Tribal Wildlife Grants program since 2003, providing support for 350 conservation projects administered by participating Federally-recognized tribes. A comprehensive report on projects awarded between 2003 and 2006 is now available online (PDF).
