Criteria for selecting proposals...

The Request for Proposals published annually through www.grants.gov and posted to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Web site at http://endangered.fws.gov/grants/priate_stewardship/index.html describes the selection criteria. Factors used to evaluate the merit of the proposals may include: (1) the number of endangered or threatened species, species proposed or candidates for such listing, and at-risk species that will benefit from the project; (2) the importance of the project to the conservation of those species, including the duration of the benefits, the magnitude of the benefits, and the urgency of the project; (3) the amount of nonfederal cost-sharing involved in the project; and (4) other proposal merits, such as whether the project complements other conservation projects in the area, the project's unique qualities, or any other appropriate justifications, including particular strengths in the above categories (e.g., extraordinary benefits or extraordinary cost share).
