Red Canyon CRM Title II Funding Request

Appendix 1

The Red Canyon Cooperative Resource Management Team
(CRM)
has applied for funding from the
Wyoming
Wildlife and
Natural Resource Trust Fund
(WNRT)
to implement infrastructure improvements
th
at will
enhance wildlife habitat across all lands within the CRM
. Title II funding is being requested to be
used as leverage for
the WNRT grant for the improvements made on USFS lands
. Title II funding would
equal roughly 50% of
USFFS land
project costs. If we are

unsuccessful in our larger grant application I
would request that we use the Title II funding only to get as many of t
he

projects
below
done as
possible. If Total requested amount is not approved I would request that partial funding be granted for
the pro
jects below that the committee deems important.

If successful these funds will be administered through the Lander Office of the Nature Conservancy.
