Grant program due date extended The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced a new deadline of Jan. 15 for the submission of proposals for funding under the new Private Stew- ardship Grants Program. The previous deadline had been Dec. 2. This program will provide a total of $10 million in federal grants to private landowners to implement conserva- tion projects for endangered, threat- ened and other at-risk species. On Oct. 1 the Fish and Wildlife Service issued a request for proposals and announced final implementation guidelines for the fiscal year 2002 Pri- vate Stewardship Grants Program. The extension gives applicants an additional 45 calendar days to become familiar with program requirements. The Private Stewardship Grants Program provides assistance on a com- petitive basis to individuals and groups engaged in voluntary conservation ef- forts on private lands that benefit at- risk species including federally listed endangered or threatened species or other at-risk species. Under this program, private land- owners and groups working with pri- vate landowners are able to submit proposals directly to the Service for funding to support these eftbrts. The Fish and Wildlife Service expects to announce the projects selected to re- ceive grants by late winter, 2003.
