Colorado Parks and Wildlife Habitat Partnership Program is accepting grant applications for large-scale habitat improvement projects.



Agencies, entities, organizations and individuals are encouraged to apply for up to $500,000 for a variety of projects including tree, shrub cutting, water developments, weed control and reseeding.

The minimum amount awarded for large-scale projects will be $100,000, according to a CPW news release.



“This program works,” said Pat Tucker, HPP coordinator for CPW, in the release. “Through HPP, we can see how a successful, working partnership between our agency and other stakeholders improves communication and effectively reduces game damage claims and conflicts.”

The Colorado General Assembly and the Colorado Wildlife Commission established HPP program in 1990 to reduce conflicts between wildlife and agricultural operators by facilitating cooperation among landowners, land managers, sportsmen and CPW.

The HPP State Council will evaluate each application using various criteria, including the size and scale of treatments and the types of improvements proposed.

The extent of the recipient’s partnerships that can be used to leverage limited funds and increase total project accomplishments also will be evaluated, the release states.

Deadline for applications is Feb. 1, 2013.

Work on approved projects may begin July 1, 2013 and must be completed by June 30, 2014.
