Eligible Applicants
  • Unrestricted (i.e., open to any type of entity below) - Applicants must have a demonstrated knowledge and understanding of the biology of the involved endangered or threatened species in the United States and their ecosystem, including preferably having worked with the species in the field and holding a currently valid Endangered Species Act permit, issued by the FWS, authorizing them to work with these species (or that have previously held a permit to do so). If funding is awarded, applicants that do not currently hold a valid permit for the proposed activity may need to apply for and obtain a permit (http://www.fws.gov/endangered/permits/index.html) before beginning the proposed activity. FWS Regional (or Field Office) contacts will discuss potential proposals with interested parties if needed, and review eligible applications. The FWS Regional Office will refer interested parties to the appropriate FWS Field Office for further consideration as appropriate.

Program Description

The FWS Ecological Services Program provides Federal financial assistance on a competitive basis to States, other Federal agencies, landowners, educators, non-profit organizations, researchers, and other partners to secure information about endangered, threatened or candidate species, to aid in the recovery of these species, to avert listing of species pursuant to the Endangered Species Act, and to help conserve the ecosystems upon which these species depend. The FWS and National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), which is part of the Department of Commerces NOAA Fisheries office, share Endangered Species Act responsibilities for several species such as sea turtles. We have responsibility for sea turtles when they are on land, and NMFS has responsibility for sea turtles when they are in the water. Projects for NMFS-managed species are not included in this funding opportunity.This Recovery Implementation funding opportunity is intended for projects that will contribute to the recovery of FWS-managed endangered and threatened species in the United States, and is limited to projects carrying out actions described in a species approved recovery plan, in the implementation schedule of a species? approved recovery plan, actions recommended in a completed 5-year status review of the species or in a spotlight species action plan, or projects documenting species response to climate change. For example: securing scientific information about endangered or threatened species, implementing restoration actions that will lead to delisting of a species, help prevent extinction of a species, or aid in the recovery of a species. Projects that address species response to climate change will receive additional consideration.
