State & Tribal Wildlife Grant Apportionment Table (FY01-FY13)

SWG Apportionment TableEach year since 2000, Congress has funded the State & Tribal Wildlife Grants Program. Funding is split between competitive grants to tribes and states and apportionments to state and territorial fish and wildlife agencies. The apportioned funding is based 1/3 on a states land area and 2/3’s on its population. No state can receive more than 5% or less than 1% of total apportionments. The District of Columbia and Commonwealth of Puerto Rico receive a sum equal to 1/2% and Guam, American Samoa, US Virgin Islands and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands receive a sum equal to 1/4%. States are required to provide 35% match for implementation projects and 25% for planning projects. Matching funds can come from either state or private sources. Funding for the program is provided under the provisions of the Fish and Wildlife Act of 1956 and the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act of 1980 which provide for the development and implementation of programs for the benefit of wildlife and their habitat, including species that are not hunted or fished. Total funding for the program in fiscal year 2012 was $61.3 million. This included $4.2 million for tribal grants and $5.7 million for state competitive grants.
