Wetland Grants - North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) Small Grants
The Small Grants Program is competitive, matching grants program that supports public-private partnerships carrying out projects in the united States that further the goals of the North American Wetlands partnerships carrying out projects in the United State that further the goals of the North American Wetlands Conservation Act. These projects must involve long-term protection, restoration, and/or enhancement of wetlands and associated uplands habitats for the benefit of all wetlands-associated migratory birds.
This program supports the same type of projects and adheres to the same selection criteria and administrative guidelines as the U. S. Standard Grants Program. However, project activities are usually smaller in scope and involve fewer project dollars. Grant requests may not exceed $75,000, and funding priority is given to grantees or partners new to the Act's Grants Program.
