The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is accepting applications until May 15 for $200,000 in grant money available for qualifying volunteer projects across the state.

The funds are made available through the Volunteer Cooperative Fish and Wildlife Enhancement Program, known as the Co-op Program, and are available for fish and wildlife beneficial projects undertaken by volunteer individuals and organization between July 1, 2002 and June 30, 2003.

Co-op Program participants have used the grants for more than 15 years to rear and release fish and wildlife, conduct research, restore habitat, develop access to outdoor recreation and conduct education activities.

"We have revised our application process in an effort to simplify participation and get grant applications reviewed and rated in order to give successful applicants an entire year to perform their projects," said Dave Gadwa, WDFW cooperative projects coordinator.

The department is requiring those interested in participating to complete a one- page application form, provide no more than a one-page text description of the desired activity, a one-page budget and a single page map of the contemplated project site.

Applications are available through the WDFW website at or by contacting the cooperative projects coordinator at (360) 902-2806.
