The Network for Landscape Conservation (NLC), a network of more than a hundred organizational partners and two thousand individual practitioners working to advance and implement the practice of conservation at the landscape scale, has announced a Request for Proposals for the first annual funding cycle of its Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund.
The purpose of the fund is to help accelerate the pace and effective practice of place-based, collaborative landscape conservation across the United States, with a specific focus on building critical capacity and forward momentum in landscape conservation partnerships through support for key building-block activities and collaborative processes that move partnerships forward.
With generous support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the fund will distribute approximately $335,000 in grants to landscape conservation partnerships in 2019.
Pre-proposals are due by Friday, April 26 at 9:00 pm ET.
NLC will be hosting informational webinars on Friday, March 22 and Thursday, March 28 at 2:00 pm ET. (Registration required.) The webinars will offer a brief overview of the RFP, but will be primarily dedicated to responding to questions. Prospective attendees are encouraged to formulate their questions ahead of time and submit them via the webinar registration form.
For additional information and/or to register for a webinar or access the application portal, see the Catalyst Fund page on the network's website.
