California Dept of Fish & Wildlife 2024 Endangered Species Conservation and Recovery Program – Due 01/29/24

Opportunity Title:

2024 Endangered Species Conservation and Recovery Program (Traditional Section 6)


California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW)


The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is seeking high quality proposals for projects that will further the conservation and recovery of federally listed threatened and endangered wildlife, plant, and certain fish species in the state. Projects proposed for funding may involve management, research, monitoring, and outreach activities or any combination thereof. Additionally, applicants may apply for funding to monitor candidate, at-risk, and recently delisted species.

Proposals should include clear and specific information about how the proposed work would address Recovery Plan goals and contribute to species recovery or prevent the need to list a species under the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA). If no Recovery Plan or Recovery Outline exists for the target species, the proposal must address the recovery goals of another United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)-approved conservation strategy or management plan (e.g., 5-year Review, Species Status Assessment). Successful applications will demonstrate a direct conservation benefit to the species or its habitat.

Eligible activities may include, but are not limited to:

• Enhancement or restoration of federally listed species’ habitat

• Surveys and inventories of federally listed species and/or their habitats

• Introduction of federally listed species into suitable habitats within their historic range

• Propagation of federally listed animals and plants

• Research, such as genetic analysis to determine genetic health and population structure of federally listed species

• Monitoring population of federally listed, candidate, at risk, and recently de- listed species (note: for candidate, at-risk and recently recovered species only monitoring projects are eligible)

• Public education and outreach activities such as coordination workshops with local landowners, when those activities address a specific threat to an ESA- listed species


Entities eligible to submit grant proposals in response to this PSN include public

agencies, state departments, colleges and universities, tribal governments, and

nonprofit entities.
