WDFW will accept applications for
ALEA volunteer grants

OLYMPIA – Starting Dec. 1, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) will begin accepting grant applications for volunteer projects that benefit the state's fish and wildlife resources and the public's enjoyment of them.

WDFW estimates having approximately $867,000 available for grants, funded through the state's Aquatic Land Enhancement Account (ALEA), for projects occurring between July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2021. The final amount available will be subject to legislative appropriation and will not be finalized until approved in the 2019 legislative session.

The program funds five major types of projects, 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.
