On October 1, 2002, we published in the Federal Register (67 FR 61649) a notice announcing the final implementation guidelines and requesting proposals for the fiscal year 2002 Private Stewardship Grants Program. In that notice, we stated that project proposals must be received by the appropriate Regional Office by no later than December 2, 2002. In order to provide the public with additional time to become familiar with the program requirements and prepare proposals for this new program, we are now extending the due date for submission of project proposals under this program to January 15, 2003.
How To Apply for a PSGP Grant
You must follow the instructions in the October 1, 2002, Federal Register (67 FR 61649) document in order to apply for financial assistance under the PSGP. For a description of the information that must be included in a project proposal, please see “The PSGP Project Proposal” section in the October 1, 2002, Federal Register document. Your project proposal should not be bound in any manner and must be printed on one side only. You must submit one signed original and two signed copies of your project proposal (including supporting information). Your unbound (a binder clip is allowed) project proposal must now be received by the appropriate Regional Office listed in Table 1 by January 15, 2003. We encourage you to contact the Regional contact person listed in Table 1 prior to submitting a project proposal should you have questions regarding what information must be submitted with the project proposal. An incomplete proposal will not be considered for funding.
