Funding for Greater Sage-Grouse Research: Request for Proposals
This message announces the call to prepare and submit proposals for funding research and management support projects through the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (WAFWA) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) Inter-Landscape Conservation Cooperative (LCC) Greater Sage-Grouse Initiative. The FWS Mountain Prairie Region Science Application Program applied for and acquired the funding to support collaborative research and data gathering efforts that support the science needs of 4 LCCs within the range of greater sage-grouse. The research projects will enhance greater sage-grouse conservation at landscape scales.
Fish Wildlife Service developed an agreement with WAFWA to collaboratively deliver two specific prongs of this initiative:
- Funding support for priority greater sage-grouse research and management projects.
- Supporting the identification and incorporation of existing datasets on sage-grouse and sagebrush ecosystems important to greater sage-grouse into the Landscape Conservation Management and Analysis Portal (LC MAP).
This Request for Proposals (RFP) solicits proposals for both aspects of this initiative. Proposals are due no later than 5 pm MDT on 8 May, 2013.
