Conservation and Habitat Restoration Grants – Due December 16

Grants to nonprofit organizations, government agencies and municipalities, tribes, and educational institutions for projects that preserve and restore natural habitats in eligible regions. Funding is intended to improve the wildlife, water quality, and water connectivity of the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley region of Arkansas, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee.

The Fund is guided by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF). NFWF is particularly interested in projects that will implement habitat restoration or improvement practices that benefit wildlife while also sequestering carbon and/or improving water quantity or quality. Tree planting projects in particular are encouraged.

Grant awards are expected to range from $100,000 to $500,000, depending on the overall scale of the project. 

Anticipated completion time for funded projects typically will be 24-36 months following finalization of a grant agreement.
