Funding - Species Recovery

Recovery  Implementation Program

Purpose - The Recovery Implementation Program coordinates with partners to recover species throughout Washington State.  The Recovery Program supports implementation of documented actions for priority listed threatened and endangered species; supports conservation actions that may preclude the need to list candidate or proposed species; and promotes understanding and addresses species response to impacts from climate change and conserves the ecosystems these species depend on.

Eligibility -
Private landowners, non-governmental organizations, municipalities, Tribes, and state or federal agencies may submit proposals and compete for funding.

Area - Statewide

Typical Projects – surveys, research, assessment and monitoring, captive breeding, propagation, introduction and genetic work, habitat protection, restoration and management, education, outreach, and other activities that help recover endangered/threatened species, or expand our knowledge about priority species.

Financial Information - Funding availability will be announced mid-summer.  Applicants are encouraged to provide cost share.  Awards typically range from $25,000 to more than $80,000.  Based on previous years' funding levels, approximately $750,000 is projected for projects in Washington state for FY15.

Recovery Land Acquisition

Purpose - Permanent conservation of land that contributes to the recovery of USFWS-listed species by supporting approved federal recovery plans.

Eligibility - Individuals or groups interested in securing land for endangered, threatened, proposed, or candidate species may apply for funds. All applicants must partner with the Washington Department of Natural Resources or the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Area - Statewide/Regional

Typical Projects - Acquisition of land from willing sellers that will support the recovery of threatened or endangered species.

Financial Information - Proposals compete regionally. Minimum 25% non-federal cost share required (cash or in-kind). More than the minimum cost share increases a proposal's competitiveness.
