Eligible Recipients: Federal, state, and local governmental
agencies, and non-profit conservation organizations.
Exception: One exception to the above list occurs under Proposition
40 funds awarded under the Oak Woodland Conservation Program, under
which private land owners may also apply and receive funding.
How Funds Are Allocated
The $300 million dollars in funding provided under Proposition 40
is allocated or awarded by the WCB through approval at one of its quarterly
meetings. The funding can be distributed through the WCB's various
habitat protection, restoration and development programs, where the
programs requirements match the intended use of Proposition 40 funding.
Parties interested in applying for funding, should review the WCB's
various programs described on this website to determine what programs
they may qualify under. More information on how to apply and how projects
are evaluated and selected can be found under each program. It is during
the evaluation of project proposals the WCB determines whether or not
a project is eligible for Proposition 40 funding; it is not incumbent
on the applicant to designate a funding source when applying for project
