Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and educational institutions for activities to conserve habitats and species in Alaska. Funding is intended to support projects that result in significant conservation outcomes. Funded projects may also increase knowledge and information through assessments and strategic monitoring that lead to improved habitat or population management actions. Priority geographic areas include the Alaska North Slope, Cook Inlet, Matanuska-Susitna Basin, Kodiak Archipelago, and Chugach and Tongass National Forests. Pacific salmon projects will be supported throughout the state.
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals to further the conservation of species and habitats in Alaska. The Alaska Fish and Wildlife Fund (AFWF) invests in projects that achieve or substantially lead to measurable on-the-ground conservation outcomes, and fill key information gaps.
All proposals must specifically address how projects will directly and measurably contribute to at least one of the following priorities:
For 2022 priority project areas for each of the above, see pp 2-4 in the RFP listed in Supporting Documents below.
Where applicable, emphasis will be placed on projects that
support watershed or headwaters-based approaches that complement existing programs. Projects that
incorporate outreach to Alaska Native communities, foster community engagement, and pursue
collaborative management while elevating traditional knowledge that will lead to measurable
conservation benefits are encouraged.
Public Lands Corps Initiative:
NFWF and its partners seek to improve the capacity of students, particularly Alaska Natives, to advance species monitoring and recovery within the State of Alaska. . In 2022, the AFWF is pursuing projects that provide opportunities for Alaska Native youth to engage in on-the-ground conservation activities and gain exposure to careers in conservation that provide qualifying service hours under the PLC authority. For further details about PLC requirements, see the document listed in Supporting Documents below.
