Applications for RCPP-SFRR are accepted year-round, and the project will utilize Act Now funding. The final date to apply for fiscal year 2023 funding will be Friday, June 30, 2023. Applications received prior to the deadline will be planned, assessed, ranked, and submitted in the order received and will be preapproved based on fund availability and if a ranking score above the threshold level has been met. Applications received after the deadline will be batched and considered for fiscal year 2024 funding.
"The Act Now funding process will allow applicants with high-ranking scores to avoid the long processing time typically associated with conservation programs," said Allness. "This will enable interested and qualified applicants to begin implementing the needed conservation practices sooner and reduce the wait time."
