State Wildlife Grants (SWG)
Federal Funding for Fish and Wildlife Conservation
In fall 2001, federal legislation established a new State Wildlife Grants (SWG) program that provided funds to state wildlife agencies for conservation of fish and wildlife species in greatest need of conservation. This funding was a direct result of "Teaming with Wildlife" efforts sustained for more than a decade by fish and wildlife conservation interests across the country.
In developing our grant applications, we relied on staff and public input, including more than 100 experts in agencies, academia and non-governmental organizations. Our goal was to develop a program that reflected the needs of fish and wildlife and the desires of key constituent groups, partners and staff. Although we could not address every important need in the first four years of the program, we look forward to developing additional projects for SWG funding in the future.
