Now Accepting Conservation Grant Proposals for 2021-2022

Selection of Enhancement/Restoration, Stewardship & Caribou Habitat Restoration Grants from 2019-20

Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation is now accepting applications for Enhancement/Restoration & Stewardship (ERS) grants, and Caribou Habitat Restoration Fund (CHRF) grants. Applications must be submitted through HCTFโ€™s online application system by 4:30pm on November 6th, 2020 (PST).

HCTF has launched a new application system this year, Survey Apply. The overall application form is similar to previous years, but this new cloud-based system will provide significant improvements by streamlining workflow and adding automated services to increase convenience for applicants.

Please visit our FAQ page to find useful tips and guidance for the new Survey Apply system.

Before beginning your application on the Survey Apply system, we strongly recommend that you complete your application on the Word worksheets posted on our website. Once completed you can copy-and-paste your answers into the online form. The worksheets also provide a useful overview of the questions and information requirements. Please note that HCTF cannot accept applications submitted by email.

Each year, Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation provides approximately $6 million dollars in Enhancement and Restoration grants to help fund projects that support the conservation of British Columbiaโ€™s native freshwater fish, wildlife, and their habitats. Since the inception of our work in 1981, the Foundation and its predecessors have invested over $189 million in more than 2980 projects across BC.

HCTF continues to partner with the Forest Enhancement Society of BC (FESBC) to meet shared conservation objectives through co-investments in conservation projects administered through HCTF.
