Conservation License Plate Grants
Now Accepting Proposals
The Wildlife Diversity Program is offering grants to support "shovel-ready" conservation-related projects.
Proposals will be accepted through September 25, 2017.
Proposals must be submitted to HLLP.Proposals@tpwd.texas.gov by 5:00 pm on September 25, 2017.
Recipients will be announced by October 20, 2017.
Proposals must address listed Funding priorities and do not have to be related to Horned Lizards, rattlensakes, or hummingbirds.
This year's funding priorities can be found in the 2018 Funding Priorities PDF and are briefly listed below:
- Mapping Bigtooth Canyon Forests in the Edwards Plateau
- Develop training materials for SGCN plant seed collection
- Ranking/Re-ranking rare plants using NatureServe Rank Calculator
- Survey and genetic analysis of Chihuahuan mud turtle
- Surveys of federally-petitioned plants
- Map and document current condition of Silveus Dropseed Prairies (G1G2; S1S2)
- State status assessment for frosted elfin butterfly
- Survey and state status assessment for Alligator snapping turtle
- State status assessment for Louisiana eyed silkmoth
- Trans-Pecos Black-tailed Prairie Dog Restoration Project
- Wildlife Entanglement in Erosion Control Products and Applications
- Survey and update NatureServe ranks for SGCN beetle species in LRGV
We suggest that many funding priorities can likely be funded for less than $30,000. Smaller proposals that address the scope of the priorities are strongly encouraged. No match contributions are required. This program is a reimbursement program. Most Funding priorities can be completed by August 31, 2018, but winter field seasons may necessitate a longer proposed time period. Please see Submission Guidelines for more information.
