Below are a few items of note:

  • The Wildlife Conservation Board (WCB) has agreed to dedicate up to $2 million in additional funds for restoration or enhancement projects.
  • Grantees for these restoration projects will enter into Grant Agreements directly with WCB.
  • All applicants will continue to use the NCCP LAG application but restoration projects will only be considered for Prop. 68 funds.
  • The application has been simplified this year.
  • Applications submitted by Implementing Entities will receive additional scoring consideration.
