Grants to Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, and Vermont nonprofit organizations, agencies, Tribal entities, and educational institutions to restore and preserve natural resources in eligible areas. Project categories include education and public participation, implementation, design and planning, and community science and water quality monitoring. All proposed projects must be within the Long Island Sound watershed boundary.
The LISFF supports efforts to test innovative approaches to conservation, deliver transformative projects and support people and communities who value the sound and take a direct role in its future. A road map guiding investments under the LISFF is the Long Island Sound Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan 2020-2024 Update. The CCMP Update has four themes (CCMP Theme) shown below, Implementation Actions (IAs) associated with each theme, and three cross-cutting principles: resilience to climate change, sustainability, and environmental justice. NFWF seeks proposal submissions that incorporate the theme(s), IA(s) and cross-cutting principle(s).
Projects that incorporate outreach to communities, foster community engagement, and pursue collaborative management leading to measurable conservation benefits are encouraged. When possible, projects—especially those implemented in underserved, under-resourced or overburdened communities—should engage community-level partners to help design, implement, and sustain projects to secure maximum benefits for communities and post-grant award.
The CCMP Update has four themes:
