The Allegheny Group Sierra Club’s Huplits Wildlife Grants Committee is seeking grant proposals to help protect animal wildlife and wildlife habitat in Pennsylvania. Approximately $50,000 will be available for the 2016 Huplits Wildlife Grant Competition. Nine grants were awarded in the 2015 competition, totaling $49,479.

Application guidelines:

  • We seek projects that directly impact wildlife in Pennsylvania on a regional or statewide level.
  •  A proposal may involve public education, grassroots campaign organization, litigation, land acquisition, or research that directly focuses on protecting Pennsylvania wildlife, its
    habitat, and preventing cruelty to animals.
  • Projects will normally be funded for no more than two years. Under special circumstances a project may be extended.
  • Grants may be sought by by non-Sierra Club organizations in Pennsylvania, although preference will be given to such organizations only if the proposed project is in
    partnership with Sierra Club members.
  • Applications seeking Sierra Club preference must be accompanied by a supporting letter from their local PA Sierra Club Group Chair.
  • All proposals should include a copy of their IRS 501 (c)(3) designation letter.

All proposals should be submitted in WORD format and include the overall purpose and goal of the project, objectives, major activities, resources required, specific timelines, a detailed budget, and a contact person’s name, address, phone number & email.

DEADLINE: Submit proposals no later than May 6th, 2016 to Ed Chute (Huplits 2016 Committee Chair) via e-mail at If you have any questions, contact Ed via email or call 724.516-7751.
