The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals to conserve and restore grasslands and wildlife species in the Northern Great Plains. The goal of the Northern Great Plains Program is to maintain and/or improve interconnected grasslands in focal areas in order to sustain healthy populations of grassland-obligate species while fostering sustainable livelihoods and preserving cultural identities. Particular species of interest include grassland obligate songbirds, black-footed ferret, pronghorn and greater sage-grouse. The Northern Great Plains program anticipates awarding more than $2.4 million in grants. Major funding partners include the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Margret A. Cargill Philanthropies.


The following are the Northern Great Plains focal areas; Dakota Grasslands, Missouri/Milk River Grasslands, Nebraska Sandhills and the Powder River/Thunder Basin Grasslands.
