Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Projects are reviewed and competitively selected for funding using criteria developed on the requirements of the African Elephant Conservation Fund (16 USC et seq.). An Assistance Award agreement between the Fish and Wildlife Service and the grantee is drafted by the Division of International Conservation and submitted to the Division of Contracting and Facilities Management (CFM)for processing. CFM then sends Award agreement documents to the grantee for signature. After being returned to CFM, the Award agreement is signed by CFM, and is effective on the date of CFM signature. Fully executived documents are mailed back to the Recipient, and thereafter the Division of International Conservation administers the Assistance Award.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
