PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Natural Community Conservation Planning Local Assistance Grant (NCCP LAG) Program was created to assist local public and non-profit entities in the implementation of Natural Community Conservation Plans (NCCPs) throughout California, as authorized under Fish and Game Code (FGC) Section 2800 et seq. Additional legal authority for the NCCP LAG Program is provided by FGC Section 150 1.5, which allows the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) to grant funds for fish and wildlife habitat preservation, restoration, and enhancement. CDFW offers NCCP LAGs to eligible Applicants on an annual basis for the highest priority tasks needed to implement NCCPs. Highest priority tasks are identified by NCCP implementing partners. CDFW, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) staff (Wildlife Agencies) throughout the preceding year.

Additional funding is available this year through the Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) from Proposition 68 funds for restoration projects. Public Resources Code § 80111 authorized Proposition 68 funds for restoration of habitat that furthers the implementation of NCCPs. Funds available pursuant to WCB’s Proposition 68 program will be prioritized for restoration and will not be used to pay for costs related to management, monitoring, acquisition, management plans, mapping, management studies, or other priority tasks not related to restoration.

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife seeks proposals for highest priority projects associated with NCCP implementation. The intention of this Proposal Solicitation Package is to solicit proposals of the highest quality that are consistent with the goals of the NCCP Program. To help achieve this intention, this Proposal Solicitation Package (PSP) provides guidance on Applicant  eligibility, the grant process and deadlines, and application and submission procedures.
