Announcing Capacity Grants!

Organizations often face challenges in identifying and initiating actions to benefit fish, wildlife, and habitat. This why HCTF is launching their new Capacity Grant program: to provide support and funding for organizations to strengthen their capability and capacity to design and deliver conservation or restoration projects. Capacity grants assist with the first steps in identifying, exploring, and undertaking actions to solve a local conservation challenge.

The goals of the grant are to:

  • Advance conservation planning (assessing capacity)
  • Engage organizations and communities (developing capacity)
  • Develop skills and abilities of communities (building capabilities)

In support of HCTF’s strategic plan, capacity grants will emphasize:

  • Caribou habitat restoration or conservation projects
  • Climate change adaptation and mitigation
  • Indigenous community-led fish, wildlife, and habitat restoration and conservation
  • Broad and diverse participation in HCTF programs and projects

The grant offers up to $25,000 and the deadline for applications is May 1st.

Eligible activities and items supported by the grant include:

  • Assessing capacity through pilot projects, surveys, test field methods, scoping, or feasibility studies
  • Developing capacity through partnerships or networking meetings, planning workshops, and sharing knowledge
  • Building capabilities through hiring a consultant or providing specialized training courses.
