WDFW Accepting Applications for ALEA Volunteer Grants

Eligible applicants include individual citizens, non-profit organizations, tribes and political subdivisions of the state such as public utility districts, schools and universities. State and federal agencies are not eligible.

Applications must be received or postmarked by Feb. 29, 2012.

“This is a highly competitive grant program,” said program coordinator Josh Nicholas. “Projects that foster individual and community involvement through the use of volunteers, have a sound budget and are consistent with WDFW goals have the greatest chance of success.”

Application materials will be available for download from WDFW’s website by Dec. 1, at http://wdfw.wa.gov/grants/alea/index.html . Those without adequate internet access can request a compact disc containing the application materials by calling WDFW at (360) 902-2700.
