Welcome to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife's ALEA Grant Program application site!    
The ALEA Grant Program will begin accepting applications on December 1, 2016.   

As of January 9, 2015, The Fish and Wildlife Commission has approved proposed changes to the ALEA Grant Program review and selection process, which will allow WDFW to conduct one application, review and award process per biennium, rather than annually.  This will be implemented for the current 2015-2017 grant round.  Please note:
  • The amount of funding available for grants is not changing, just how often we accept applications.
  • There will not be an application period beginning December, 2015, as all grant funds will be awarded during the current application round.
