State Wildlife Grants Project Summaries
Since the inception of the program, State Wildlife Grants allocations to New York have ranged from $2.3 to $3.7 million per year. Decisions as to how to apply these funds are based on the needs identified in our Comprehensive Wildlife Conservation Strategy (CWCS), a document developed over a 3-year period with substantial public input. Based on recommendations in the CWCS, over 100 projects have since been implemented. These projects are diverse, covering all animal groups, all areas of the state, and ranging in scale from ecosystems to subspecies. The projects vary in length from one to five years, and include baseline surveys, research, conservation planning, and habitat protection.
