The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) will help Utah-based organizations offer hands-on learning activities or events in the state for new anglers via an Angling Activities Grant program during Fiscal Year 2017 (July 1, 2016–June 30, 2017). The maximum single award amount is $1,000 (total grant funding available is expected to be approximately $10,000–15,000). The application period will begin May 1, 2016 and run through June 30, 2016.
Successful applicants must sign a memorandum of understanding with the DWR to receive the funds, and submit a report to the DWR that includes a summary of how the activity or event went, the number of participants, etc. The angling activity or event must occur by June 30, 2017. Reports for Fiscal Year 2017 grants are due by June 30, 2017. Failure to report will disqualify an applicant from consideration for receiving future Angling Activities Grant funds.
The Angling Activities Grant Review Committee will assess grant applications according to the following considerations:
Safety is a top priority for the DWR at all events involving youth and wildlife recreation. To that end, a minimum of two adults (age 21 years or older) must be present at any youth-focused activity or event that receives a DWR Angling Activities Grant. Except in cases of immediate family members, one-on-one contact between adults and youth is prohibited. This requirement also extends to electronic forms of communication. If electronic communication is part of the activity or event, two adults should be copied on any messages exchanged between an adult and youth. These stipulations exclude immediate family members.
