Recovered Oil Fund for Wildlife Request for Proposals

The purpose of the Recovered Oil Fund for Wildlife is to support projects
that help bolster populations of fish and wildlife species impacted by the
Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

*Application Guidelines*
The following guidelines will be used by NFWF, and a technical advisory
panel of experts, to evaluate applications requesting support from the
Recovered Oil Fund for Wildlife. Final decisions on awards will be made
solely by NFWF.

Priority will be given to projects that:

   - Will directly benefit populations of fish and wildlife species that
   have been affected by the oil spill (such as oysters, tuna and other fish
   species, marine mammals, sea turtles, marine and coastal birds).
   - Can directly measure, or legitimately estimate, population benefits,
   (enhanced reproduction, survival, or food resources) as a result of project
   - Are implemented in the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and
   Florida. Projects in Texas, Mexico and areas outside of the Gulf region,
   both national and international, will also be considered where there is a
   significant benefit to an impacted population.
   - Can complete activities and realize proposed conservation benefits to
   the population within a 12-18 month timeframe.
