bringing together private citizens, Federal, State, and municipal agencies, and non-governmental organizations to conserve migratory birds through a variety of actions including; education, conservation, and habitat improvement. Urban Bird Treaty Cities, in addition to working to conserve, protect and restore and enhance habitat, reduce bird hazards, and educate urban residents on the importance of migratory birds, cities and their partners will promote outdoor bird-related experiences, foster environmental education with a focus on birds, and build natural resource career development opportunities when possible. Partners work to increase awareness of the value of migratory birds and their habitats, especially for their intrinsic, ecological, recreational, and economic significance. Urban Bird Treaty cities and their partners develop and implement bird conservation projects and provide matching dollars and in-kind support. The Service provides financial challenge grants with a one to one match and technical assistance. FUNDING - Urban Bird Treaty Cities Challenge Grants. Based on a completive grants proposal process, chosen cities are awarded Service "challenge" grants.

The Urban Bird Treaty city is "challenged" to raise an amount equal to or greater than the amount of funds awarded by the Service. The matching support raised by the Urban Bird Treaty city must be of non-federal origin. Matches may consist of cash, "in-kind" contributions of goods and services from the Urban Bird Treaty city and its partners, or a combination of cash or in-kind donations from other institutions or businesses. The Urban Bird Treaty program offers a great deal of flexibility to incorporate the best combination of projects that are appropriate for the city and that will also have the greatest benefits to birds.

Application should be mailed to: Alicia F. King, National Coordinator, Urban Bird Treaty, 4401 Fairfax Dr., Arlington, VA 22203 or emailed to: Alicia_F_King@fws.gov
