IDNR accepting grant applications – The Shoppers Weekly



July 21, 2023

The Illinois Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) is accepting grant applications for the State Pheasant Fund Special Funds Grant Program and for the Illinois Habitat Fund Special Funds Grant Program through Aug. 1.

The Pheasant Fund program enhances pheasant habitat through projects developed by nonprofit organizations and governmental entities. The Habitat Fund program enhances game and non-game wildlife habitat through projects developed by nonprofit organizations and governmental entities. Funding for both programs comes from the sale of Habitat Stamps to sportsmen and sportswomen.

Prior to applying for either grant, entities must be registered and current in the state’s Grant Accountability and Transparency Act grantee portal at https://grants.illinois.gov/portal/.

This year, all applications will be accepted online in the Amplifund online portal.
