National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant Program
The National Coastal Wetlands Conservation (NCWC) Grant Program is a competitive matching grants program administered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to acquire, restore, and enhance wetlands of coastal States and the Trust Territories. Although only state agencies are eligible applicants, Ecology is encouraged by USFWS to partner with tribes, cities, counties, land trusts, and other state and federal agencies. Partner organizations will be considered subgrantees for any successfully awarded projects.
|Current Funding Cycle|
Applications are due in June each year. For federal fiscal year 2018 there will be ~$17 million available. If your organization is interested in being a subgrantee and having Ecology sponsor an application, please contact Heather Kapust at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-407-0239 to discuss the proposal and application process.
|Applications Accepted||Who’s Eligible||Eligible Project Types||Match||Grant Limit|
||Only State agencies are eligible to apply for NCWC grants, however, the Department of Ecology has a strong interest in supporting projects from partner organizations that will conserve coastal wetlands.||
||A minimum 25% match is required, however, additional points are awarded for match above the minimum amount. Match is to be provided by subgrantee. Ecology does not provide matching funds.||
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) expects that approximately $17 million will be available for grants through the NCWCG Program in FY 2018. Awards typically range from $125,000 (there is no specific minimum) to a maximum of $1,000,000.
