The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation (HCTF) funds a variety of types of conservation work including projects that that restore, maintain, or enhance native freshwater fish and wildlife populations and habitats; environmental education, and stewardship projects; and projects that acquire land or interests in land to secure the value of these areas for conservation purposes.
Current funding opportunities from HCTF include:
Enhancement & Restoration Grants - fund projects that focus on freshwater wild fish, native wildlife species, and their habitats, have the potential to achieve a significant conservation outcome while maintaining or enhancing opportunities for fishing, hunting, trapping, wildlife viewing, and associated outdoor recreational activities.
Stewardship Grants - fund projects that focus on creating stewards and engaging people to increase their knowledge, awareness, and understanding of fish, wildlife, and their habitats. May involve direct action in which people are stewarding the land (e.g., restoring a wetland, creating specific habitat features, removing invasive plants) or indirect action in which proponents work with others to achieve positive outcomes for fish and wildlife (e.g., landowner contact programs, citizen science, hands-on educational programs).
Caribou Habitat Restoration Grants - fund functional and ecological caribou habitat restoration projects.
