Community Foundation of Western Nevada Invites Proposals for Wildlife Conservation Projects

The Community Foundation of Western Nevada is accepting proposals for its Dream Tags Charitable Fund, which provides funding to engage Nevadans in wildlife conservation and efforts to restore resilience in at-risk Nevada habitats.

Through the fund, grants will be awarded to projects designed to improve, protect, or restore habitat; that embrace unique opportunities for advancing the mission of wildlife conservation in Nevada; and/or that address emergency organizational needs.

Grants typically are paid on a reimbursable basis for actual expenditures. Funding will not be provided for work performed prior to grant approval. Applicants must provide a minimum 25 percent match for any funds requested.

For non-emergency projects, proposals must be received no later than February 8, 2018. Emergency funding requests may be submitted at any time.

To be eligible, applicants must be a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, nonprofit educational institution, or government entity. 

See the CFWN website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
