Congratulations on the approval of your Land Stewardship Project!
Here are a few things you need to know to manage your HCTF Land Stewardship Grant:
- Conditional Grant Agreement
- HCTF & Province of British Columbia Acknowledgement
- Project Change Requests
- Eligible Activities
Please note that your project final approval is subject to entering into a Conditional Grant Agreement with HCTF. You have received two copies of a conditional grant agreement and an accompanying checklist. Please read your grant agreement carefully, and complete all requirements on the checklist before returning to HCTF.
The funding for the HCTF Land Stewardship Grant is provided from the proceeds on an endowment provided by the Province of British Columbia. Therefore, HCTF and the Province of British Columbia must be acknowledged in any publicity issued, printed or distributed, including signs, displays, reports, announcements, articles, press releases, or media interviews.
This includes a requirement for including the HCTF and Province of British Columbia logo on all signs funded under the program:
- HCTF logos are available at the bottom of this page.
For text based materials such as reports and brochures, please include the following acknowledgement statement, in addition to the logo: “The (insert Name of Recipient) recognizes the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation and the Government of British Columbia for making a significant financial contribution to support the (insert Name of Project). Without such support, this project would not have been possible.”
HCTF Land Stewardship Grant Projects require grant reports to be submitted annually, with the Year 1 Grant Report due March 31, 2018. More information on the payment and reporting schedule is available in Appendix 3 to your Conditional Grant Agreement, a copy of which can be found here. Report forms will be distributed to proponents by email in late 2017.
For your information, the list of eligible and ineligible activities is available here.
