Based on input from members of the North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) Council Staff, the USFWS expects significant carry-forward funds being available in the 2021 grant cycles (Standard Grants: February and July 2020 deadlines; Small Grants: October 2020 deadline) due to the increased FY 2020 NAWCA appropriation of $46 million and high returns on the Pittman-Robertson funds allocated to NAWCA. The USFWS is strongly encouraging partners and past successful NAWCA grantees to apply in the 2021 grant cycles.
