Cage Grants

Two $1000.00 grants will be awarded to help defray costs for two current (dues paid) WRNC members to use for building pre-release caging. WRNC recommends that the cages be built to meet the IWRC/NWRA “Minimum Standards Guidelines”.

Time Frame: Applications are due by November 1st, annually. All WRNC members in good standing (dues paid and no wildlife infractions) are encouraged to apply for a Cage Building Grant in accordance with the eligibility requirements and instructions found on the application form. Preference will be given to those members who have not previously been awarded a WRNC Cage Building Grant. The selection for the two grant recipients will be made by the Board of Directors during the annual Symposium (January), and the recipients notified immediately following that decision.
