Grants typically ranging from $10,000 to $80,000 to British Columbia government agencies, community and conservation groups, IHEs, and individuals for programs that benefit fish, wildlife, and habitat in the province. Preference is given to projects that create stewards through community-based, hands-on education and engagement programs, including Citizen Science. Stewardship projects may include some on-the-ground components such as habitat restoration.
Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation (HCTF) recognizes the importance of environmental stewardship and invests in projects that create stewards. Stewards include individuals, practitioners, and community organizations who take responsibility for promoting, monitoring, conserving, and restoring ecosystems to ultimately result in enduring conservation outcomes for fish and wildlife and their habitats. Proposed projects must align with their purposes as laid out in the Wildlife Act.
Note that projects requesting significantly higher amounts of funding will be reviewed with greater scrutiny to assess cost-effectiveness and to ensure the potential conservation benefits justify this level of funding. When reviewing proposals, the Board also considers the multi-year implications of investments.

Stewardship Grant budgets typically range from $10,000 to over $80,000 annually, with an average grant of approximately $30,000.
HCTF operates on a standard fiscal year, running from 1 April – 31 March. For example, a proposal submitted on November 1, 2019 would request funding to support project activities to take place between 1 April, 2020 and 31 March, 2021. Proposals are approved on an annual basis—a multi-year project must apply EACH YEAR for funding for the next year’s activities. There is a 5-year limit to project funding.
