activities must contribute directly to the development or modification of your Wildlife Action Plan (Plan) approved by the Director of the Service or other Service designee.
Implementation activities are those that you carry out to execute your Plan.
Priority for use of these funds must be placed on your identified species of greatest conservation need (SGCN) and their habitats, and should take into consideration the relative level of funding available for the conservation of these species.
Ineligible activities include wildlife education and law enforcement activities, unless they are a minor or incidental component considered critical to the success of your project.
