Grant Description

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) is pleased to announce the availability of financial assistance to state wildlife agencies for issues related directly to the management of white-nose syndrome (WNS). This opportunity is only open to state wildlife management agencies. Priority will be given to proposed activities where WNS or the causative fungus, Pseudogymnoascus destructans (Pd) has been detected. However all states are encouraged to apply. For a current list of states and species affected by WNS, see The Service has targeted up to $1 million for this funding opportunity in 2016 to help build state capacity that will assist with the management and control of WNS. Available funds are from internally directed funds for Fiscal Year 2016. These grant awards are made under CFDA Number 15.657, Endangered Species Conservation Дкк Recovery Implementation Funds. 2016 PRIORITIES The purpose of this funding opportunity is to help our state partners build or expand WNS management programs.

The Service will fund proposals that address the following objectives: Дк▐ Increase survival of bats and persistence of colonies facing WNS; Дк▐ Stop or slow the spread of Pd; Дк▐ Prevent the arrival and establishment of Pd in non-affected areas while preparing for its potential arrival; Дк▐ Maintain and support populations of bats in the regions where the WNS is now endemic.
