The Network for Landscape Conservation (NLC) is pleased to release this Request for Proposals (RFP) for the new Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund, made possible through the generous support of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The purpose of the Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund is to accelerate the pace and effective practice of place-based, collaborative landscape conservation across the United States. The Fund specifically seeks to build critical capacity and forward momentum in landscape conservation partnerships by supporting the key building block activities and collaborative processes that move partnerships forward. The Fund will provide approximately $335,000 in funding through competitive grants in 2019. Applicants may request a one- or two-year grant of $10,000 – $25,000. Interested applicants should carefully review this Request for Proposals (RFP) for instructions. The Catalyst Fund is pleased to have a portion of the Fund dedicated to Indigenous-led partnerships that serve Indigenous communities working on landscape conservation. Applicants representing a landscape partnership that is Indigenous-led and primarily serving an Indigenous community(s) should read the Indigenous Community RFP and apply through that separate process. The 2019 grant cycle timeline is as follows:
