WDFW accepting applications
for ALEA volunteer grants

OLYMPIA – The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) is accepting grant applications through Feb. 28, 2015 for volunteer projects that benefit fish and wildlife.

WDFW currently expects from $1.1 to $1.36 million to be available for these grants, funded through the state’s Aquatic Land Enhancement Account (ALEA), beginning July 1, 2015.

Interested persons can apply at http://alea.fluidreview.com.

Five major types of projects are funded through the program, although others may be considered.  These project types include habitat restoration, scientific research/citizen science, public education, facility development and artificial fish production.

Eligible applicants are individual citizens, non-profit organizations, schools (including universities), tribes and political subdivisions of the state such as conservation districts.  For-profit businesses, and state and federal agencies are not eligible.  

Funds are provided on a cost-reimbursement basis and may not be used for salaries, wages, stipends or benefits.  Grantees are required to follow state purchasing rules and report on their progress quarterly.
