NFWF Accepting Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Grant Applications; June 1 Webinar

National Fish and Wildlife Federation is now accepting applications for Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Program grants.  Proposals are due July 13.

The Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Program will award grants to restore and sustain healthy forests, rivers and streams that provide habitat for diverse native bird and aquatic species populations in identified geographic areas. 

Approximately $3 million is available this year. Major funding is provided by the Bezos Earth Fund, the Richard King Mellon Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. 

The overall goal of the program is to improve the quality and connectivity of forest and freshwater habitat in order to increase the distribution and abundance of birds, fish and other wildlife, as evidenced by a suite of species that collectively are indicators of forest and freshwater habitat condition. 

June 1 Webinar

Potential applicants are invited to participate in a June 1 webinar from 1:30 to 3:00 p.m. to learn more about the program and application process.  Click Here to register.
