PRATT — The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism (KDWPT) is accepting proposals for the Chickadee Checkoff Small Grants Program through January 1, 2020. Grant recipients may use the funds to carry out projects focused on wildlife diversity and native non-game wildlife species, while addressing the issues and strategies within the Kansas State Wildlife Action Plan.
Since 1980, Chickadee Checkoff has funded a wide variety of educational, research-based, and habitat projects, as well as the monitoring of non-game wildlife and habitats. By making small grants available, KDWPT can utilize the talents and expertise of people outside of the department to further Kansas’ conservation efforts.
The diverse projects completed as a result of this program have led to numerous publications in scientific journals, educational products, and new information on native non-game wildlife species and their habitats.
Interested parties have until January 1, 2020 to turn in a completed grant proposal.
