Nevada County Fish and Wildlife Grant Program Now Open

The Nevada County Fish and Wildlife Commission is soliciting grant proposals for Fiscal Year 2020/2021. The Fish and Wildlife Commission has made a total of $15,000 available to non-profit organizations, schools, or other organizations and individuals. The grant program is supported through the Nevada County Fish and Wildlife Propagation Fund, which receives fifty percent of base fine revenues from Fish and Game Code citations issued in the County. The funds, as denoted in California Fish and Game Code §13103, may be used for fish and wildlife education programs, temporary care of injured or orphaned wildlife, improvement of fish and wildlife habitat, or scientific fish and wildlife research.

The grant period is now open with an application submittal deadline of November 30, 2019. The Nevada County Fish and Wildlife Commission request that applicants also provide an oral presentation at their December 3, 2019 meeting.

On February 4, 2020, at the Fish and Wildlife Commission meeting, the commission will vote on the applications and a proposed budget will be forwarded to the Board of Supervisors. Grants awarded will be paid at the beginning of the 2020/2021 Fiscal Year.

For more information or for a copy of the grant application please visit Nevada County's Fish and Wildlife Commission or contact the Nevada County Department of Agriculture at (530) 470-2690.
