How to apply...
Generally in the form of a letter to the Regional Directors of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service stating the need for management assistance and requesting the services available.
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
After considering program commitments and obligations, State, Federal agencies, or Native Americans will generally be informed by letter from the Director or Regional Director, followed by development of a formal Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) or understanding (MOU).
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
