National Fish and Wildlife Foundation: America’s Great Outdoors Landscape Conservation Stewardship Program
Land conservation coalitions funded

America’s Great Outdoors Landscape Conservation Stewardship Program, an initiative of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) in cooperation with the National Wildlife Refuge System, aims to develop community-based partnerships that further the conservation of fish, wildlife, plants, and other natural resources in distinct landscapes.

The program will provide grants in the following categories:

  • The Training and Mentoring by Existing Conservation Coalitions category will award grants in the amount of $10,000 to $40,000 to support existing landscape coalitions to conduct mentoring and training for newly-formed conservation coalitions.
  • The Capacity Building for Newly Formed Landscape Conservation Coalitions category will award grants in the range of $25,000 to $75,000 to support the creation and/or capacity growth of new regional community-driven coalitions to support landscape scale habitat protection and restoration.

The application deadline is July 31, 2012. Visit the NFWF website to review the program overview and the request for proposals.
