Funding for Tackling Invasive Weeds

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation extended their deadline for pre-proposals under the Pulling Together Initiative program. This initiative is one of the only public-private partnerships to address invasive weeds nationally. Pulling Together Initiative grants are intended to help support the creation of local cooperative weed management area partnerships.

This program is inviting applications for competitive grant funding to promote the conservation of natural habitats by preventing, managing or eradicating invasive and noxious plant species. In 2018, the program will award grants to develop or advance Cooperative Weed Management Areas, Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas, and Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management within the sagebrush ecosystem. Approximately $420,000 is expected to be available for grant awards in 2018. The program is a partnership between the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S.D.A Forest Service.

The new deadline is next Thursday, July 19 at 11:59pm Eastern. Find the details here and in the below Request for Proposals.
