Aquatic Lands Enhancement Account (ALEA)

Volunteer Cooperative Grant Program

Grant applications will be accepted from December 1, 2013 – February 28, 2014.

Over the years, WDFW’s ALEA Grant Program has supported hundreds of individuals and organizations who have undertaken a variety of projects that engage volunteers and benefit Washington’s fish and wildlife resources.

ALEA grants are in high demand; therefore, we follow a competitive process to select recipients.  If interested, read below for more information about the program and how to apply.

The ALEA Grant Program funds five major types of projects; however, others may be considered.

  • Habitat projects include activities that restore and/or preserve fish and wildlife habitat.
  • Research projects increase our knowledge of fish and wildlife species.
  • Education projects communicate information or provide hands on experiences that will enhance public understanding of fish and wildlife and their habitat.
  • Facility Development projects provide or enhance access to fish and wildlife related recreational opportunities.
