FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
April 29, 2011

Request for FY 2012 Tribal Wildlife Grant Proposals

The Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) invites submission of grant
proposals from federally recognized Indian tribal governments, including
Alaska Native Villages, for the development and implementation of programs
that benefit wildlife and their habitat, including species of Native
American cultural or traditional importance and that are not hunted or
fished. TWG supports projects that develop or augment tribal capacity to
manage, conserve, or protect fish and wildlife resources through funding
and technical support. The Fiscal Year 2012 Presidentís Budget proposes to
fund the Tribal Wildlife Grant program at $8,000,000, a $1,000,000 increase
from the FY2011 Presidentís budget request.

Project proposals must be postmarked by September 2, 2011 and submitted to
the Regional Office. A TWG project proposal includes a cover page, program
summary, program narrative, budget narrative, budget table, resolution of
support from the tribal council, and Standard Form 424 Application for
Federal Assistance (SF-424).
