The Alameda County Fish and Wildlife Propagation Fund is primarily supported by fine revenues and restitution monies which result from violations of the Fish and Game Code and Title 14 of the California Code of Regulations in Alameda County and other civil and criminal violations of environmental laws. Expenditures made from the Fund must benefit the fish and wildlife resources of the County.
The Commission will be awarding three levels of grants this year based on merit and need. We are pleased to be able to offer a single $30,000 grant for an on-the-ground habitat restoration project. If you are interested in applying for this level of grant funding, please provide a detailed project plan on the application attached here.
We also anticipate awarding 1-2 grants of up to $10,000 and 5-8 grants of up to $5,000 dependent upon our funds available and the quality of the grant applications. Please list the total award you are seeking where indicated on the application. Alameda County may modify, or rescind in total, any/all awards granted, to any named grantee, at the Countyâ€™s discretion.
Projects awarded funds from the Fish and Wildlife Propagation Fund must meet the requirements of Section 13103 of the Fish and Game Code (attached) which describes the specific types of projects that are eligible. Though all projects which meet the requirements of Section 13103 will be considered, the Fish & Game Commission strongly encourages applications relating to activities to protect and conserve fish and wildlife, including improvement of fish and wildlife habitat, public education about fish and wildlife conservation, and scientific fish and wildlife research in Alameda County. Final awards are most often given to non-profit groups.
