Grants to British Columbia government agencies, First Nations, individuals, universities, and community groups to plan and implement environmental preservation projects. Applicants must receive an application-portal user ID prior to applying. Funding is intended for conservation projects with a focus on populations of Northern Goshawk and/or Marbled Murrelet. Proposals that involve on-the-ground habitat enhancement and/or restoration activities are strongly encouraged. This funding stream supports Seed Projects, New Projects, and Continuing Projects.
Grants are provided to projects that:
Seed grants are for proponents who have an idea for a new enhancement and restoration project but need to do some planning and preliminary work to develop their idea before submitting a full new proposal. Proponents may apply for seed funding to help fill information gaps, explore project feasibility, identify project partners, and prepare technical information. Note that this funding is not for a small, stand-alone project; the seed grant activities are meant to culminate in development of a full HCTF proposal (submitted within two years).
A project is considered NEW if:
A project is considered to be Continuing if:
GrantWatch ID#: 138530
There is no upper limit on funding requests. E&R Grant budgets typically range from $10,000 to over $100,000 annually. Projects requesting funds in excess of $100,000 per year will be reviewed with higher scrutiny to ensure the potential conservation benefits justify this level of funding.
Proponents may apply for seed funding of up to $5,000.
Proposed project activities can begin on 1 April of the year in which they are approved.
There is a five-year limit to project funding. When reviewing proposals, the Board considers the multi-year implications of investment.
After 5 years of continued HCTF funding, a proponent can access another cycle of funding by reapplying with the Continuing – New 5-Year Cycle application form. Note that HCTF funds multi-year projects one year at a time. To apply for multi-year funding, you must submit a continuing application each year of the project using the appropriate form.
