The reviews will be handled by board members in each of the three regions — Peace, Columbia, and Coastal. Each Board will meet to discuss grant applications and make final decisions.

All the successful applicants will be notified in March.

Grants are approved for projects that align with FWCP’s action plans. The Peace Region has seven plans on the go, including a Peace Basin Plan.
