National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF)
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that preserves and restores the nation’s native wildlife species and habitats. Created by Congress in 1984, NFWF directs public conservation funding to the most pressing environmental needs and matches those investments with private funds.
The Foundation is committed to helping wildlife to adapt to changing climate conditions across the country. NFWF is targeting competitive grant-making to make strategic investments that will benefit fish and wildlife species that are vulnerable to climate change. They have identified several areas for grants that could be further developed through dedicated federal funding including freshwater supply and quality; coastal resources such as marshes, wetlands and reefs; fish and wildlife movement, and migrations; as well as the renewable and domestic energy sectors.
Information on NFWF’s funding opportunities and grant programs can be found on their website. A searchable library of NFWF grants, application details, and grant evaluation resources are available.
