WDFW will accept applications for
ALEA volunteer grants

OLYMPIA – Starting Dec. 1, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will accept grant applications for volunteer projects that benefit the state's fish and wildlife resources and outdoor recreation.

WDFW anticipates that approximately $1.37 million will be available through the state's Aquatic Land Enhancement Account (ALEA) for projects undertaken from July 1, 2017 through June 30, 2019. 

The final amount of funding for the next round of ALEA grants is subject to approval by the state Legislature during the 2017 legislative session.

Five major types of projects are funded through the program, although other project types may be considered. Project types include habitat restoration, scientific research/citizen science, public education and outreach, 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, state and federal agencies are not eligible.  

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