The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) in partnership with members of the U.S. Coral Reef Task Force (USCRTF), specifically the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), announces the availability of grant funding to build local capacity and support for projects that will help restore natural resources in the Guanica/Rio Local watershed in Puerto Rico.
Priority will be given to proposals submitted by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) based in Puerto Rico. Other organizations with ideas for projects, such as universities, territorial agencies, individuals or NGOs based outside of Puerto Rico, should partner with a local NGO to develop and execute their project.
The RFP can be found at www.nfwf.org/coralreefs/guanica<http://www.nfwf.org/coralreefs/guanica>. The majority of awards under this program will fall in the range of $10,000 to $60,000. Matching funds from non-US federal sources are encouraged but not required. Please see the RFP announcement for a description of the funding priorities for this competition as well as other important application information.
Brief pre-proposals for this competition are due on July 1, 2011 and must be submitted via the NFWF Easygrants system (http://www.nfwf.org/easygrants)..
NFWF will also host a webinar on June 7th to discuss the priorities identified in the RFP and describe how to write a competitive application. Details and sign up information will be available at www.nfwf.org/coralreefs<http://www.nfwf.org/coralreefs> shortly.
