(The following text is an excerpt from the January Bulletin of the Network for Landscape Conservation Jan. 2019)
This spring, thanks to generous funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Network for Landscape Conservation (NLC) is launching a major five-year national grant program to accelerate the pace and practice of collaborative conservation at the landscape scale. Through a competitive grant program, the Catalyst Fund will distribute at least $1 million in funding to landscape conservation partnerships across the United States over the first three-year period, while also providing grantees with supplemental trainings and mentoring.
The Catalyst Fund RFP will be announced in mid-March, 2019, after which there will be a Fund webinar and opportunities to talk to NLC staff. To ensure you receive all future information on the Fund, check back regularly on the NLC website and make sure you are on the NLC emaillist.
