USFWS Request for Bird Conservation Proposals - Due January 21, 2014


The purpose of this announcement is to solicit bird conservation proposals from agencies and organizations interested in obtaining funding from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for cooperative projects in the Upper Midwest (IL, IN, IA, MI, MN, MO, OH, and WI) in 2014. You can access our Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) at: http://www.grants.gov/view-opportunity.html?oppId=248033 .  Once there, click the “Full Announcement” tab to see the NOFA.  If you don’t want to navigate through the Grants.gov website, I have attached a copy of the NOFA below.  It will tell you everything you need to know about the kinds of proposals we are seeking and the process you have to go through to submit a proposal to us.


Notice of Funding Availability FY 2014




We are focusing on three high-priority issues that are of mutual interest to our partners:  monitoring to evaluate the effects of wetland management on Midwest marshbirds, development of a strategic plan for grassland bird conservation in the Midwest, and identifying and implementing conservation strategies to address threats to Golden-winged Warblers during the non-breeding season.  We strongly encourage you to talk to the points of contact listed in the NOFA to discuss project ideas before you develop your proposal.




Please email your proposal and all of the other required paperwork to Steve Lewis (steve_lewis@fws.gov).  Try to keep your proposal less than 10 pages in length.  The deadline for proposals is COB January 21, 2014.


We will make funding decisions by March 2014, but it's possible that we might not have a budget in time to provide funding for 2014 field work.
