The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry is now accepting applications for the 2018-2019 Species at Risk Research Fund for Ontario (SARRFO).
The SARRFO is a targeted component of the larger Species at Risk Stewardship Fund (SARSF) Program. SARRFO supports the protection and recovery of species at risk by funding high quality scientific research that addresses key threats and knowledge gaps, and informs the protection, recovery and management of species at risk in Ontario.
Funding priorities have been identified for the 2018-19 funding year and are outlined within theguidelines. It is estimated that 2018-19 funding levels will allow the Ministry to support approximately 10-15 of the highest priority research projects.
All applicants are to carefully read the attached SARRFO Guidelines before completing and submitting an application. All application requirements are outlined in the Guidelines.
Accepting funding requests for research projects extending over one or two years, to a maximum of $30,000 per year per project.
Research activities must occur between April 1, 2018 and February 28, 2019 (for the 2018-2019 fiscal year) and April 1, 2019 and February 29, 2020 (for the 2019-2020 fiscal year) to be eligible.
Multi-year requests will be evaluated on an individual basis and will be considered based on demonstrated need and available funds. Funding for the subsequent years will be dependent on availability of funds and/or whether the necessary appropriation is provided from the Ontario Legislature.
