The Western Division currently has project funding available for Division Chapters, Subunits, and other fisheries-related groups. Grants are usually modest but can help get a project started or be used to complement other funding sources. This year, the WDAFS Executive Committee approved a budget of $5,000 to fund as many small projects as appropriate. Applications must be received by the Western Division Past President no later than January 5, 2017 COB Mountain Time. Questions should be directed to WDAFS Past President Jim Bowker (jim_bowker [at] fws.gov).
See the application description for further details.
