The Bureau of Reclamation is seeking interested non-profit organizations and conservation corps to enter into master cooperative agreements for its youth conservation and youth intern partnership programs.
Deadline: Nov. 6.
Although these Youth Intern Master Cooperative Agreements (CFDA Number 15.546) (Funding Opportunity Number: R16-FOA-DO-001) are not attached to any funding and no amount of funding is guaranteed, the agreements cover five years and expedite the process for awarding funding for youth programs when funding becomes available.
Since 2010, under previous five-year agreements, Reclamation has entered into more than 15 cooperative agreements with several youth organizations in its 17 western state jurisdiction. Reclamation has leveraged $1.5 million in federal funding with $1.4 million in partner cost-share to support almost $3 million in projects or about 800 youth opportunities.
Applicants apply to reclamation offices in Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Wyoming, Utah, and Washington and Washington DC. Up to 15 new agreements will be available.
