Tribal Wildlife Grants

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
  • public education that is relevant to the project.


The funds may be used for salaries, equipment, consultant services, subcontracts, acquisitions (e.g., project materials, goods and services) and travel. Land acquisitions are not allowed.

The grant provides 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.
