Prescott Grant Cost-Share Calculator
The Prescott Grant Program provides grants or cooperative agreements to eligible stranding and entanglement network participants for: (1) recovery and treatment (i.e., rehabilitation) of stranded or entangled marine mammals; (2) data collection from living or dead stranded or entangled marine mammals, and (3) facility upgrades, operation costs, and staffing needs directly related to the recovery and treatment of stranded or entangled marine mammals and the collection of data from living or dead stranded or entangled marine mammals.
Applicants are required to provide matching funds for a minimum of 25 percent of the total project costs, not just the federal costs. For example, if the federal portion (75 percent of the total costs of the project) is $150,000, the applicant's matching costs must be at least $50,000 (25 percent of $200,000). The maximum amount of federal funds that can be awarded for any one grant is $150,000.
Applicants are encouraged to use the cost-share calculator below to determine matching funds. Match and federal amounts must be in whole dollars. If the 25 percent calculation results in a partial dollar amount ending in cents, please round up to whole dollars.
