MONTEREY COUNTY — Monterey County Fish and Game Advisory Commission is now soliciting grant applications for the 2021-22 Propagation Fund Grant Program.
Projects funded by the Propagation Grant Fund Program are intended to benefit citizens of Monterey County, specifically the protection, preservation, enhancement and education of the fish and wildlife resources.
Special emphasis is placed on youth education of the fish and wildlife resources, habitat conservation and outdoor activities.
The Commission generally funds projects in the range of $2,500 to $5,000, depending on the type of project or program proposed, the number of proposals received and the amount of available funds to award.
“The Commission considers and determines funding requests, and their recommendation is then forwarded to the County Budget Committee and Board of Supervisors for final approval,” according to a county press release. “Once the Board considers and approves the funding requests, the Public Works, Facilities and Parks Department’s Finance Division will then process and distribute the grant payments.”
Applications are due Friday, Oct. 15, by noon and can be submitted to the Monterey County Fish and Game Advisory Commission, c/o Susan Rosales-Nava, Monterey County Department of Public Works, Facilities and Parks, 1441 Schilling Place, 2nd Floor, Salinas, CA 93901-4527.
