The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) announced the release of the 2021 Request for Proposals for Walmart’s Acres for America Program. This year, the program will award $3.5 million in grants to projects that conserve important large-scale habitats for fish, wildlife, and plants through land acquisitions and perpetual conservation easements.

Acres for America grant proposals are due April 15, 2021 and the full RFP can be found here. An applicant webinar will be held March 24, 2021 at 1:00-2:00 PM Eastern Time.
Potential projects should address the program priorities including 1) conservation of critical habitats for birds, fish, plants and wildlife; 2) connection of existing protected lands to unify wild places and protect migration routes; 3) providing access for people to enjoy the outdoors; and 4) safeguarding the future of local economies that depend on forestry, ranching and recreation.
