Parks and Wildlife Offering Habitat Grants

colorado parksColorado Parks and Wildlife’s Habitat Partnership Program is now accepting applications for $500,000 in Habitat Improvement Grants to fund large-scale habitat projects across Colorado. Any entity, agency, organization or individual that is interested in applying can download the application online. The deadline is February 2nd. Up to five successful applicants will be awarded grants of $100,000 or more. Created by Colorado Parks and Wildlife and authorized by the state legislature in 1990, HPP brings wildlife managers, hunters, landowners and land management agencies together in a cooperative effort to reduce big game damages to forage and fences. Project proposals for this grant opportunity must be developed to reduce big game/agricultural conflicts in keeping with the program’s mission. HPP is funded from a portion of the revenue generated by the sale of big game hunting licenses but also asks for matching funds and labor from project proponents.
