Funding Available for Conservation of Bird Habitats
Deadline: June 1, 2003 (Pre-proposals)
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation
( http://www.nfwf.org/ ) is accepting pre-proposals for
habitat conservation and management projects to be funded
through the Migratory Bird Conservancy
( http://www.conservebirds.org/ ).
MBC will fund projects that directly address conservation
of priority bird habitats in the Western hemisphere.
Acquisition, restoration, and improved management of
habitats are program priorities. Education, research,
and monitoring will be considered only as components of
actual habitat conservation projects.
All grantees will be required to match MBC awards on at
least a one-to-one level with cash or tangible in-kind
contributions. Pre-proposals and proposals will be judged
by at least the following criteria: importance to partners
in Flight Watch List species; priority of the proposed
conservation action within regional or state Partners in
Flight conservation plans; benefits of proposed project
to other nearby conservation areas, such as national
wildlife refuges; viewing opportunities for birders, and
actual or potential volume of visitation; other partner-
ships; and matching funds ratio.
Early submission of pre-proposals is appreciated. Full
proposals will be required by July 15, 2003. See the NFWF
Web site for complete program guidelines.
