Grant
Category of Funding Activity:Natural Resources
Category Explanation:The principal objective of this Recovery Implementation funding opportunity is to support the implementation of priority recovery actions for federally endangered and threatened species. The ESA conveys the importance of recovery plans as a central organizing tool for guiding each species’ recovery process by requiring their development for every listed species. Recovery plans establish an overall recovery vision that, among other things: • Defines the point at which protections under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) are no longer needed, • Identifies and prioritizes the most effective and feasible suite of recovery actions that will promote species survival and recovery, • Provides the public and policy makers with an overall estimate of the time and cost to recover species, and the ability to measure success and resources needs, and • Aids the Service in working with others to improve the status for imperiled species.
