Occasionally, HCTF receives funding that is restricted to a specific location, species, or activity. The majority of our restricted funding is the result of court awards made to HCTF through creative sentencing intended to repair or compensate for environmental and ecosystem related crimes. The restricted funding can be the basis for a full project or form a small component of a larger project.
HCTF provides a list funds available, their value, and the associated conditions on our website in an effort to encourage proposals that will utilize the funding for the upcoming year’s grant intake. The current list of available restricted funding has been posted below.
