Funded Projects List

MOBCI BIRD HABITAT RESTORATION GRANTS

MoBCI grant proposals are solicited, reviewed, and ranked by the MoBCI Grant Subcommittee. This team and the MoBCI Steering Committee offer recommendations to the Department of Conservation, which then completes the granting process. Grants up to $20,000 may be awarded.

Funded projects included those with multiple partners, targeted suites of priority bird species, and projects which address the objectives listed in one or more of the major national bird conservation initiatives (i.e., the North American Waterfowl Management Plan, Partners in Flight, North American Waterbird Conservation Plan, U.S. Shorebird Conservation Plan, and the Northern Bobwhite Conservation Initiative). Additional funding sources may be tapped to allow full funding for a variety of projects or an additional grant to be awarded from submitted proposals.

Selection criteria include the number of priority bird species addressed (15 points), priority habitats conserved (15 points), bird initiative plan goals and objectives addressed (15 points), partnerships developed (20 points), usefulness of the project as a model for other projects (10 points), capacity of the organization(s)/individual to accomplish the project (10 points), and budget (15 points).
