The Program accepts proposal applications on a continuous basis. Please review the General Grant Guidelines (PDF) and contact the Program Manager with any questions. Visit the Grant Opportunities page for the application documents.
All Full Applications must be reviewed and recommended for funding by the Program’s Advisory Committee before staff can bring the proposal to the voting members of WCB for final funding consideration. Since the Advisory
Committee only meets twice per year, typically the second Thursday in April and
October, the timing for submitting a Pre- or Full Application must be carefully considered when applying for grant funds. The board of WCB meets every quarter typically in February, May, August, and November. If invited to submit a Full Application, it must be received in January to be presented at the April Advisory Committee meeting or received by July to be presented at the October Advisory Committee meeting. After the Advisory Committee recommends it for funding, the proposal can be presented at the next quarterly Wildlife Conservation Board meeting.
