Notice of Rule Proposal
Conserve Wildlife Matching Grants Program, N.J.A.C. 7:5
Take notice that the NJ Department of Environmental Protection is proposing amendments to N.J.A.C. 7:5 for the Division of Fish and Wildlife’s administration of the Conserve Wildlife Matching Grants program.
The Conserve Wildlife Matching Grants program was created in 1995 when a portion of the Motor Vehicle laws was amended to create the Conserve Wildlife dedicated motor vehicle license plate (N.J.S.A. 39:3-33.11). Of the wildlife conservation license plate’s yearly renewal fee, the law requires that $2.00 be given to the Division of Fish and Wildlife (Division) to provide grants for endangered and non-game wildlife conservation projects.
The proposal is scheduled to be published in the New Jersey Register dated February 7, 2022. A copy of the proposal is available on the Department’s webpage at: http://www.nj.gov/dep/rules/proposals/20220207a.pdf and LexisNexis free public access to the New Jersey Register (https://www.lexisnexis.com/hottopics/njoal).
Written comments are due by April 8, 2022. The Department encourages electronic submittal of comments. Written comments may be submitted electronically at www.nj.gov/dep/rules/comments; or in hard copy to:
