Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and Indian tribes for projects that enhance big-game winter range, migration corridors, and stopover areas located on federal and private land in eligible Western states. Funding is intended for projects that strengthen and sustain populations of mule deer, elk, and pronghorn and have a positive effect on other species present. State-identified focal areas must be within Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

All proposals must specifically address how projects will directly address state game and fish (wildlife) department-identified priorities to conserve or restore habitat and measurably contribute to the sustainability of local and regional big-game populations and accomplishment of program priorities, which include:

  1. Restoring degraded priority winter range, stopover areas, and migration corridors by activities identified in the state plans such as removing encroaching trees from sagebrush ecosystems, rehabilitating areas damaged by fire, or treating exotic/invasive vegetation to improve the quality and value of these areas to big game and other wildlife.
  2. Work cooperatively with private landowners and State highway departments to achieve permissive fencing measures, including potentially modifying (via smooth wire), removing (if no longer necessary), installing if serving to direct big game movement out of harm’s way, or seasonally adapting (seasonal lay down) fencing if proven to impede movement of big game through priority migration corridors.
  3. Implement measures such as conservation easements and management agreements or other actions to protect bottle necks within corridors and other areas within priority winter range or stopover areas threatened by fragmentation. (Limited funding is available for conservation easements, contacting the program manager for further details is recommend to entities considering land protection applications).
  4. Utilize other proven actions necessary to improve the habitat quality /or restore priority big-game winter range, stopover areas, or migration corridors across the West.

Funds should be spent on migration corridor projects taking place on or in proximity to BLM lands. The FWS-PFW funds will support migration corridor activities on private and tribal lands. Applicants are required to submit a supplemental project map that include state identified priority areas with a general land ownership layer and legend (i.e. BLM, Forest Service, state Lands, private lands).
