[ARCHIVED] Science and Research Grant Program Request for Proposals

The East Contra Costa County Habitat Conservancy is accepting funding proposals for our Science and Research Grant Program. The Conservancy is looking to fund small science and research projects that will contribute to our understanding of target special status species and how to better manage their habitat.

Under this Science and Research Grant Program, the Conservancy may fund research that endeavors to illuminate, and where possible to resolve, uncertainties associated with management of natural communities and covered species. Research selected for funding will aid in achieving the biological goals and objectives of the East Contra Costa County HCP/NCCP and inform management actions and/or contribute to the general understanding of a covered species. Such research will generally relate to the following:

  • Efficacy of natural community enhancement/creation/restoration techniques,
  • Refining ecological requirements of covered species,
  • Response of covered species and natural communities to implementation of management actions within the Preserve System, or
  • Strategies to conduct management or monitoring actions that support and/or lead to better management of natural communities or covered species.

Awarded projects may work with the Conservancy and East Bay Regional Park District to access over 13,000 acres of conserved lands in east Contra Costa County for research. More details about the program, how to apply, and submittal requirements are included in the following RFP. Proposals will be accepted until Tuesday, May 4, 2021 at 5 pm.
