Sagebrush Landscapes Program Funding Opportunity

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation is soliciting proposals for projects that conserve, restore and enhance sagebrush and associated habitat. The pilot year objectives of the Sagebrush Landscapes Program are to support several strategic projects that accelerate and implement cross-jurisdictional management collaborations and/or provide transfer of knowledge and implementation of mesic area/wet meadow restoration efforts. 

Preference will be given to projects that accelerate adoption of the most cost effective and sustainable approaches that exhibit a high likelihood of success. 

The Sagebrush Landscapes Program will award approximately $450,000 in grants ranging from $50,000 – $250,000. Major funding for the Sagebrush Landscapes Program comes from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, and the U.S. Forest Service. This program was created in 2017 to address bottlenecks in sagebrush conservation and promote healthy rural agricultural economies in the western United States. 

For the full RFP and applicant tip sheet, please go to the Sagebrush Landscapes Program Page. Pre-proposals are due June 15th. Additional inquiries can be directed to Seth Gallagher at the contact information below.
