NFWF Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Program Accepting Grant Applications Thru July 12

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Program is now accepting grant applications for projects to restore and sustain healthy forests, wetlands, rivers and streams that provide habitat for diverse native bird and freshwater fish populations.
The deadline for applications is July 12.  Approximately $2 million is available this year.
The Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Program will award grants in the Appalachian region of New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia. Within this region there are three distinct targeted geographies, as detailed below.
Applicants are encouraged to deploy a range of strategies to engage public and private landowners in active stewardship through technical and financial assistance, demonstrations, education and outreach and other innovative approaches.
Pennsylvania applicants are encouraged to concentrate habitat restoration activities within one or more of eleven Focal Geographies in western Pennsylvania.
These geographies have been identified in partnership with the Richard King Mellon Foundation as places where targeted investments have the potential to reduce multiple threats to high quality forest and freshwater habitat.
The focal geographies include Shenango, French Creek, Upper Allegheny, Mid and Lower Allegheny, Laurel Highlands, Dunkard Creek, Conemaugh and Clearfield Headwaters, Upper Juniata River, Bald Eagle to Penn Valley, Moshannon, and Triple Divide. Click Here for more.
Major funding is provided by the Richard King Mellon Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the American Forest Foundation and Shell Oil Company.
