PLJV ConocoPhillips Grants
The PLJV ConocoPhillips granting program funds projects that improve conservation practices and increase knowledge about the birds, habitats and people within our boundaries. We support and promote habitat conservation for wintering, migrating and breeding birds that occur on playa lakes, saline lakes, marshes, riparian areas and associated uplands in portions of Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas.
A limited amount of funding is available annually for project proposals in three categories: habitat conservation, research and education/outreach. Funding is limited to no more than $25,000 per project per year.
To submit an application to the PLJV, download the proposal instructions, prepare the proposal, and send an electronic copy (MS Word) to PLJV by November 1. Late proposals, or proposals that do not follow guidelines, will not be accepted. Applicants will be notified of funding decisions shortly after the winter Management Board meeting in January.
