Additional Information on Eligibility:
The Gap Analysis Program (GAP) of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is offering grant and/or cooperative agreement opportunities to States, local governments, or other recipients for projects performed in partnership with USGS GAP. The GAP has developed project partnerships across the country for nearly twenty years. The program operates under the broad authorities of the Fish and Wildlife Coordination Act (16 USC 661), the Land and Remote Sensing Policy Act of 1992 (15 USC 5657a(2)) and the Organic Act of the U.S. Geological Survey (43 USC 36d). Project proposals must be consistent with the programís authorities, and with the specific program objectives and annual priorities itemized in this announcement and its addenda.Gap analysis is a scientific method for identifying the degree to which native animal species and natural communities are represented in our present-day mix of conservation lands. Those species and communities not adequately represented in the existing network of conservation lands constitute conservation "gaps." The purpose of the Gap Analysis Program is to provide broad geographic information on the status of ordinary species (those not threatened with extinction or naturally rare) and their habitats in order to provide land managers, planners, scientists, and policy makers with the information they need to make better-informed decisions. The specific mission of the GAP is to provide state, regional, and national assessments of the conservation status of native vertebrate species and natural land cover types of the U.S. and to facilitate the application of this information to land management activities. This is accomplished through the following five objectives: 1. map the land cover of the U.S.2. map predicted distributions of vertebrate species for the U.S. 3. document the representation of vertebrate species and land cover types in areas managed for the long-term maintenance of biodiversity 4. provide this information to the public and those entities charged with land use research, policy, planning, and management 5. build institutional cooperation in the application of this information to state and regional management activities.
