Angling Activities Grants Program
The Angling Activities Grant program

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. The maximum single award amount is $1,000. The application period runs through August 25, 2017.

Successful applicants will be notified by September 1, 2017. Successful applicants must sign a memorandum of understanding with the DWR within 5 business days to receive the funds. The angling activity or event must occur between September 5, 2017 and July 31, 2018. After the activity or event takes places, successful applicants will also be required to submit a report to the DWR that includes a summary of how the activity or event went, the number of participants and other information. These reports are due August 4, 2018. You or your organization will be disqualified from receiving future Angling Activities Grant funds if you fail to submit a report.

Selection considerations

The Angling Activities Grant Review Committee will assess grant applications according to the following considerations:

Safety stipulation

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.
