The Conservancy’s Science and Research Grant Program funds research that endeavors to illuminate, and where possible to resolve, uncertainties associated with management of the natural communities and species covered by the HCP. Research selected for funding will aid in achieving the biological goals and objectives of the Plan and inform management actions and/or contribute to the general understanding of a covered species.
The Conservancy participates in and helps fund research projects that support the conservation of species covered by the Plan. In addition to these broad research efforts, the Conservancy runs a research grant program. These grants are awarded every other year in a 2-year cycle. The next grant cycle is expected to open in early 2023.
