      So much for them doing proofreading before sending out the announcements. Copied and pasted from Grants.gov.

      Probably missing a 0 for 100 awards expected, they normally don't give out a lot of dough per award. At least I hope so, that's a heck of an admin cost for running the program.

          When I grow up I want to be a pro baseball player. Really work for about 35-45 minutes a night, stand around the rest of the time and bring in a few million a year. That's the life for me.

            That pro basketball thing is harder than it looks. Those guys work out and shoot hoops at least 2 or 3 hours a day. Plus they gotta meet with the nutritionist, proper hair cuts, manicure, yadda, yadda, yadda...

              How do you find out if you qualify for this grant? We have a lot of state owned land in and around our district. I assume that is different than DOI managed land?

                The website that Brian posted above can answer alot of your questions on eligibility. There is an FAQ section. DOI land is federal land that fall within the following 4 agencies: Bureau of Indian Affairs, National Park Service, Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

                This is a 10% matching grant.
