Conservation Partners program announce Spring 2013 RFP

Help the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) deliver on their partnership called the Conservation Partners Program!  The purpose of this partnership is to provide grants on a competitive basis to support field biologists and other habitat professionals (botanists, ecologists, foresters, etc.) working with NRCS field offices in providing technical assistance to farmers, ranchers, foresters and other private landowners to optimize conservation on private lands.  Funds may also be used for outreach, monitoring, evaluation, and capacity-building.

The program priority areas for this round of funding are:

•         NRCS’s Landscape Conservation Initiatives
•         NFWF’s Keystone initiatives
•         Working Lands for Wildlife

Organizations interested in competing for this competitive grant opportunity should have a look at the program support information and the Request for Proposals.   The pre-proposal deadline is April 23rd, 2013.

A webinar to review the grant process and program goals, and to answer questions, will be held on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm, EST and will be available on the Conservation Partners website throughout the RFP cycle.
