National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) RFP Announced

The NFWF 2017 request for proposals covers three main geographies across Alaska.

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is requesting proposals to further conservation of species and habitats in Alaska. The conservation strategy for Alaska follows NFWF’s institutional outcome focused approach to species conservation, and includes three primary focal geographies: The Yukon-Kuskokwim Region, Cook Inlet/Matanuska-Susitna watershed, and Alaska North Slope. Projects outside of these geographies that support fishery conservation may also be considered on a case by case basis, particularly those projects targeting Pacific salmon protection, enhancement and restoration initiatives through the Alaska Fish Habitat Partnerships.

In the Cook Inlet/Matanuska-Susitna watershed area, NFWF seeks to support a comprehensive watershed management approach to conserving fish and wildlife in the Cook Inlet geography. Focal species for this geography include Chinook, Sockeye and Coho salmon and migratory shorebirds.

Program funds will be allocated to projects that:

Achieve or substantially lead to measurable on-the-ground conservation outcomes;
Fill key information gaps through assessments and strategic monitoring that result in or
substantially lead to measureable management actions.

Support for this program is provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), Bureau of Land
Management (BLM), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA), and various other federal sources. Grants may be awarded using one or
more of these sources of funding.
