Grant Types and Minimum/Maximum Awards: 

Individual Project Grant:  This type of grant is for individual projects on a single tract of land, or multiple, smaller tracts in the same general area for which pre-project planning has been conducted.  Generally, the tracts are identified in advance and the landowners are known.  Habitat management practices, acreage impacted, costs, and cost-share partners are known.  For individual project grants, there is no maximum grant request, but small requests are discouraged. 

Block Grant:  This type of grant is for multiple (> 2) projects that need not be specifically identified in advance, but please identify possible projects.  Block grant applicants must specify the habitat restoration, enhancement, or creation practices to be conducted; the total acreage to be impacted by each practice; and matching funds (if needed, see matching funds requirements below).  Recipients will be obligated under contract to deliver the habitat conservation acreages and to provide matching funds specified in their applications.  After individual projects are identified, the block grant recipient must find a local CPW project sponsor (see Project Sponsor section below) and submit an application form (see Attachment 2) for approval by CPW before proceeding with the project.  Recipients may use their network of partners and subcontractors to accomplish project delivery.  For block grants, the minimum funding request is $100,000 and there is no maximum request.
