Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations, state government agencies, local governments, municipal governments, Indian tribes, and educational institutions.
NFWF estimates awarding $5-7 million in grants.  Major funding comes from the EPA Chesapeake Bay Program Office, with other important contributions by Altria Group, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service and U.S. Forest Service, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
