Submitting a Proposal to the CVPCP and HRP
The CVPCP and HRP utilize a proposal solicitation process to fund and carry out conservation actions within the Programs' project areas. A single process is applied to both Programs.
At the beginning of each funding cycle, a Funding Opportunity Application (FOA) is posted on www.grants.gov. A brief notice announcing the FOA posting is mailed to prospective applicants using an established mailing list. Proponents who wish to be included on this list should contact Program Managers and provide address information. Federal agencies are not eligible to submit proposals under the FOA, however they are eligible to receive program funding. Interested federal agencies should contact the Program Managers to discuss how to apply for funding.
The FOA provides up to date information regarding Program priorities and other submission guidelines. The deadline for submitting an application will be indicated in the posted FOA. Generally, deadlines are in mid-November or early December.
Proposals should be submitted in the Programs' standard format indicated in the FOA. All proposals are ranked using a numerical ranking process, but final funding decisions can be based on additional factors.
The following documents and links provide prospective applicants all the information needed to submit a proposal to the Programs:
