California Sea Otter Fund: Grant Applications Due September 9, 2016
The State Coastal Conservancy is now accepting applications for its 2017 Sea Otter Recovery Grants. The grants will be funded with monies from the California Sea Otter Fund, which is one of the state’s voluntary tax check-off funds that allows taxpayers to contribute additional money for use towards the recovery of California sea otter populations.
Public agencies and nonprofit organizations are eligible to apply for the grants (see Proposal Solicitation for details). Eligible projects include research, science, protection projects or programs related to the Federal Sea Otter Recovery Plan or improving the nearshore ocean ecosystem, including, but not limited to, program activities to reduce sea otter mortality. Each year, the Conservancy solicits proposals for the annual appropriation from the fund. This year the Conservancy has approximately $118,000 available for projects that meet the fund’s objectives. Applications can be submitted at any time, but to ensure consideration for this year’s funding, applications must be received by close of business September 9, 2016.
For more information, please refer to the Proposal Solicitation and the Conservancy’s Grant Application. Applications can be submitted by email; no hard copies are required.
For more information, please contact Trish Chapman, Central Coast Program Manager, at Trish.Chapman@scc.ca.gov
