MultiState Conservation Grant Program Overview


The Multistate Conservation Grant Program (MSCGP) funds projects that address regional or national level priorities of state fish and wildlife agencies. It was established in 2000 by the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Programs Improvement Act, which amended the Pittman-Robertson Wildlife Restoration Act and the Dingell Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act.  The Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) cooperatively administer the Multistate Conservation Grant Program. The Association solicits grant proposals and makes its “priority list” recommendations to the USFWS, who can only fund projects from the Association’s list and manages and monitors grant awards. Each year, up to $6,000,000 is available to fund MSCGP projects.
