2013 NAWCA Small Grants Deadline

The North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) Small Grants Program is accepting proposals for projects involving long-term protection, restoration, and/or enhancement of wetland and associated upland habitat that benefits wetland dependent migratory birds, primarily waterfowl. A one to one match of non-federal funds to the NAWCA request is required.

IWJV reviews and ranks all proposed NAWCA projects within its boundaries. This year, grant applications must be submitted on or before October 31. If you are planning on submitting a proposal, please notify IWJV as soon as you are able and send us a copy of your draft application no later than September 30 if you would like assistance. New applicants will need to sign up with grants.gov approximately three weeks before the date they wish to submit. We advise that applicants allow extra time in the process to ensure the proposal is properly submitted. For more information, contact Ali Duvall at ali.duvall@iwjv.org, or visit the Fish and Wildlife Service's Small Grants homepage.
