National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Invites Applications for Native Plant Conservation Initiative

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals for the Native Plant Conservation Initiative (NPCI) grants cycle.

The NPCI grant program is conducted in cooperation with the Plant Conservation Alliance, a partnership between the foundation, ten federal agencies, and more than 270 non-governmental organizations.

There is a strong preference for "on-the-ground" projects that provide plant conservation benefit according to the priorities established by one or more of the funding federal agencies and to the Plant Conservation Alliance strategies for plant conservation. In 2010, NPCI is particularly interested in projects that focus on the effects of climate change. Projects that include a pollinator conservation component are also encouraged.

Eligible applicants include 501(c) nonprofit organizations and local, state, or federal government agencies. For-profit businesses and individuals are not eligible to apply directly to the program, but are encouraged to work with eligible applicants to develop and submit proposals.

Projects require a minimum 1:1 non-federal match by project partners, including cash or in-kind contributions of goods or services (such as volunteer time).

Visit the NFWF Web site for complete program guidelines.
