Each summer, the Eastern Brook Trout Joint Venture requests project proposals to restore and conserve habitat necessary to support existing healthy and productive populations of brook trout and to restore habitat that currently or historically sustained brook trout populations.
Federal funding available under the National Fish Habitat Action Plan through the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will be used to fund the top ranked projects. The maximum award amount for an individual project is $50,000. All projects must be developed in collaboration with the nearest U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Sponsoring Office. Funding can only be used for on-the-ground habitat conservation and improvement projects and related design and monitoring activities.
The application deadline for FY14 funding is September 30, 2013.
The EBTJV completed action strategies for conserving brook trout (Conservation Strategy August 2007), as well as common state-level objectives. These action strategies and objectives are aimed at achieving the EBTJV’s principal goals and are used to guide the partnership’s decision-making as well as measuring its progress and successes.
This is the project completion form required for every EBTJV funded project.
