Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, local, state, and municipal governments, Indian tribes, and educational institutions for habitat restoration programs in eligible New England states. Funding is intended to restore and sustain areas that provide healthy habitats for diverse bird populations, as well as freshwater and diadromous fish populations. Projects from throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont are invited, as well as projects within the Lake Champlain and Upper Hudson watersheds in New York.

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals for the New England Forests and Rivers Fund (NEFRF) to restore and sustain healthy forests and rivers that provide habitat for diverse bird populations, as well as freshwater and diadromous fish populations. The program will advance this goal by investing in projects that:

  • Strengthen the health of forest systems by improving the management of public and private forestlands to create a mosaic of mixed-age forests in the region;
  • Provide incentives to strengthen habitat conservation on working forests through flexible technical assistance that is appropriate for the forest stage(s) being targeted;
  • Improve the quality of river and stream systems through targeted riparian and stream restoration;
  • Reduce barriers to fish passage and increase fish access to high quality habitat; and
  • Enhance biodiversity of forest and river systems and increase populations of species representative of system health.
