The deadline to submit a letter of intent is November 18th. Details for AFSAR and HSP can be found below. Read on for more information and how to apply.

The 2017-2018 call for proposals for the Aboriginal Fund for Species at Risk (AFSAR) and the 2017-2018 Call for proposals for the Habitat Stewardship Program (HSP) are now open, and the deadlines are just around the corner. Letters of intent are due this Friday, the 18th of November.

AFSAR provides funding to support projects aimed at developing Indigenous capacity for participation in the recovery of species at risk, protection of habitat for species at risk, and preventing species from becoming a conservation concern.

HSP provides funding to help Canadians protect species at risk and their habitats and to proactively prevent other species from becoming a conservation concern. The program fosters land, water and resource use practices that maintain the habitat necessary for the survival and recovery of species at risk, enhancing existing conservation activities and encouraging new ones.

For more information on these programs and to obtain the 2017-2018 application guidelines, please visit the Environment and Climate Change Canada – Funding Programs webpage.
