Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Territories tribal governments for environmental conservation programs. Funds are intended to support activities that preserve native animal populations and their natural habitats, including those of Native American traditional and cultural significance. Eligible activities include, but are not limited to, surveys, public education, natural history studies, laboratory research, and monitoring.

The goal of the Tribal Wildlife Grant Program is to provide a competitive funding opportunity for Federally recognized Tribal governments to develop and implement programs for the benefit of fish and wildlife resources and their habitats, including species of Native American cultural or traditional importance and species that are not hunted or fished.

The TWG Program provides opportunities for federally recognized Tribes to engage in fish and wildlife conservation efforts on their lands, many of which are located adjacent to DOI-managed lands. Many of the TWG-funded project activities increase fish and wildlife populations, allowing for hunting and fishing opportunities on and off Tribal lands. Additionally, the TWG Program also funds project activities that align and assist the Service with Endangered Species Act (ESA) activities supporting downlisting, delisting, and preventing species listing under the ESA. Specifically, TWG Program awards assist and help fulfill the following DOI priorities:

  1.  Creating a Conservation Stewardship Legacy Second Only to Teddy Roosevelt
  2.  Utilizing Our Natural Resources
  3.  Restoring Trust With Our Local Communities
  4.  Ensuring Sovereignty Means Something

Activities may include, but are not limited to:

  •  Planning for conservation of fish and wildlife, and their habitats
  •  Conservation management actions for fish and wildlife, and their habitats
  •  Field and laboratory research related to fish and wildlife resources
  •  Natural history studies
  •  Fish passage
  •  Habitat mapping or evaluation
  •  Field surveys and population monitoring
  •  Restoration of habitat
  •  Management of invasive species
  •  Public education relevant to the proposed project

The funds may be used for salaries, equipment, consultant services, subcontracts, acquisitions and travel.
