What is the schedule of review and approval of proposals?

Proposals are due by March 1, 2015. Proposals will be reviewed by WMI and by the USFWS to certify match and multi-state requirements. WMI may contact applicants for clarification or to allow for amendments to remove disqualifying elements. Eligible applications will be forwarded to Technical Review Committees by April 1. Highest ranking proposals will be submitted by the Technical Committee to the Northeast Fish and Wildlife Diversity Technical Committee for review and ranking. Proposal authors may be contacted by a technical representative to discuss potential refinement or clarification of proposal’ scope, goals, objectives or methods. Funding decisions will be made by the NEAFWA Directors at their fall meeting and funds will be available in early January.
