Grants to Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming nonprofit organizations, federal, state, and local government agencies, Indian tribes, and educational institutions for environmental projects. Funding is intended for work in focal landscapes to conserve and restore wildlife species associated with sagebrush, irrigated meadows, and aquatic systems while conserving the phenomenon of large mammal migration

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals for projects that conserve, restore, and improve habitat in the Intermountain West. Competitive proposals submitted under this RFP will support strategic projects that accelerate and implement priority conservation practices as identified in the RMR business plan. The following practices will be given priority consideration during this funding cycle: 

  • Mesic area/wet meadow restoration on Bureau of Land Management lands that may also include cross jurisdictional land ownership
  • Innovative and strategic management of annual invasive grasses in Idaho
  • Capacity that supports the delivery of conservation easements through Farm Bill programs in Utah 
  • Monitoring sagebrush obligate songbird (sagebrush sparrow and sage thrasher) populations in response to management activities 

Preference will be given to projects that accelerate adoption of the most cost effective and sustainable approaches that exhibit a high likelihood of success.
