How to submit a proposal for APLIC funding

APLIC funds research projects that further the knowledge of avian/power line interactions, including causes and solutions to avian mortalities due to power line electrocutions and collisions.  Examples of applicable research topics include:

  • assessment of electrocution and/or collision rates associated with distribution and/or transmission lines
  • effectiveness of various retrofitting practices intended to reduce avian mortality or mitigate problem bird nests on utility structres
  • risk assessments to identify factors contributing to electrocution and collision mortality risks for different species
  • evaluation of impacts of power line construction on bird species

To request APLIC funding, complete a "Funding Request Application" and send a complete project proposal packet to:rloughery@eei.org.  Project proposal packets must include:

  • Project proposal/scope of work
  • Budget*
  • Timeline
  • Deliverables
  • Resumes/C.V. of project researchers
  • Funding request form

*Note: Indirect costs included for proposed APLIC funding should not exceed 10%.
