    Additional Notes
    Malpai Borderlands received section 6 HCP planning grants in 2001 ($95,000) and 2002 ($92,000). As of August 2003, they have not yet signed their agreement with AGFD, nor has AGFD signed their Federal Aid agreement with FWS. It is likely that they will combine the 2 years funding. NM Dept. of Fish and Game is not going to request funding for 2001 but will request funding for 2002. Significant progress was made in FY05 and FY06 towards the completion of the HCP. A permit application was received at end of FY06. A revised draft of the MBHCP was approved by MBG in Spring 2007. Permit decision was made and permit issued on September 11, 2008.
