$9 Million in Grants to States for Imperiled Species Conservation

$9 Million in Grants to States for Imperiled Species Conservation | Kansas City infoZine News | USA
excerpt from above:
Quote:
The SWG Competitive Program, part of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s State Wildlife Grants Program, awards grants to projects that implement strategies and actions to conserve imperiled species contained in approved State Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Plans (also known as State Wildlife Action Plans). Grants are scored using criteria developed by a team of Service and state wildlife agency directors. Funding for the grants comes from Fiscal Year 2008 and 2009 appropriations for the SWG Competitive Program.

“The projects funded by these grants target some of the most imperiled species and habitats in the United States. They’re also among the most effective, because they are tied to well thought-out conservation plans that identify the highest priorities in each state – as well as the areas where we can make the biggest difference for imperiled species,” said Salazar.

How nice of them. A bone. And what good timing to announce this after 200 billion went to financial institutions.
