2020 Grants Awarded and COVID-19 Update

Funding for approved 2020 grant projects was sent to all organizations in late May. In light of potential project delays caused by COVID-19, there is an optional one-year deferral to use 2020 funding next year in 2021.

If you are able to complete your project in 2020 as planned, submit an annual report by December 15, 2020 on the results of the project.

If you chose to defer your grant funding for the same project in 2021, submit an annual report by December 15, 2020 to let us know that you will defer the funding one year.

If you chose to defer your grant funding for a new project in 2021, also let us know by December 15, 2020.  It might be necessary to submit a new grant proposal for a project that is significantly different from the originally-approved project for 2020.

In all cases, be sure to cash the 2020 County-issued check within six months or the check will be cancelled.  Any questions, just email us.

2020 Grant Application is coming soon!

The official application for 2020 funding will be sent on January 6, 2020 to our email list and posted on this website. Submittals will be due on February 14, 2020.  New in 2020 will be a $30,000 grant awarded to one organization for on-the-ground habitat restoration.  We are excited to be able to offer this higher award in 2020 along with the typical $5,000 and $10,000 awards that are available each year.

2019 Grant Awards have been Announced

Notification has gone out to the organizations that will be awarded grant funds in 2019, pending formal approval by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.

If you haven’t received a notice, check your spam folder for an email from admin@alamedawildlife.org.  Better yet, add this address to your safe senders list.

We thank everyone who submitted a grant proposal this year.  Due to limited funding, we were not able to endorse all proposals.
