PCAF Deadline May 16th, 2016

A team of volunteers looks on as water quality monitoring equipment is installed in the Gorge Waterway in Victoria, BC. It's time to submit your applications for PCAF funding! The Public Conservation Assistance Fund provides small grants to organizations and individuals who have a great idea for a conservation project, but need financial assistance to make it happen. Projects can include activities such as wetland restoration, reptile monitoring, bird banding, and bat box construction - there are all sorts of possibilities, so long as the project provides clear conservation benefits for BC fish and wildlife and has a strong volunteer component. Application instructions and forms are available here. Applications must be submitted to HCTF by 4:30PM on May 16, 2016 to be eligible for funding. 

 

Since 1974, the Province of BC and the Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation have provided approximately $150,000 in PCAF grants to help implement on-the-ground conservation work, with a particular focus on hands-on, community based and public awareness initiatives. More than 1000 such projects have been carried out under the program so far.
