WDFW’s ALEA Grant Program has supported hundreds of individuals and organizations who have undertaken a variety of projects that engage volunteers and benefit Washington’s fish and wildlife resources.
ALEA grants are in high demand; therefore, we follow a competitive process to select recipients. Grant funds are available on a cost reimbursement basis.
The ALEA Grant Program funds five major types of projects; however, others may be considered.
- Habitat projects include activities that restore and/or preserve fish and wildlife habitat.
- Research projects increase our knowledge of fish and wildlife species.
- Education projects communicate information or provide hands on experiences that will enhance public understanding of fish and wildlife and their habitat.
- Facility Development projects provide or enhance access to fish and wildlife related recreational opportunities.
- Artificial Production projects rear and release fish or wildlife for public recreation or to restore populations.
- All artificial production projects must be pre-approved by WDFW to be eligible to apply for an ALEA grant.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Eligible applicants include individual citizens, non-profit organizations, schools (including universities), political subdivisions such as conservation districts and tribes.
- ALEA grants will only support project activity that occurs in Washington State.
- All projects must use some level of volunteer effort to conduct project activities.
- For-profit businesses, State, and federal agencies may not apply.
- No funds may be used for direct wages, benefits or stipends.
- Mitigation projects are not eligible for ALEA funding.
- If certain elements of a project involve the grantee charging the public a fee for goods or services, grant funds cannot be used to support development or production of those particular goods or services.
- For example, if a grantee intended to sell maps of a wildlife area, grant funds could not be used to develop or produce those maps.
