NOW OPEN - 2024 Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund RFP

Date: Thursday, December 7, 2023
Source: National Fish and Wildlife Foundation

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation has today announced the release of the 2024 request for proposals (RFP) under the Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund.

This RFP expects to award approximately $30 million in federal and private sector funding in support of on-the-ground projects that help accelerate longleaf pine restoration on private and public lands to support wildlife, sequester carbon, safeguard water quality, and increase forest resilience. Limited funding also is available to support bottomland hardwood restoration and enhancement activities as outlined within the RFP.

In pursuit of habitat and species restoration goals, applicants are encouraged to prioritize projects that also address co-benefits of proposed restoration activities (carbon sequestration, water quality/quantity, etc.) and engage local communities and historically underserved landowners.

All proposals must specifically address how projects will directly and measurably contribute to the longleaf pine and associated species goals outlined in the Longleaf Forest and Rivers Business Plan.

Full proposals are due Thursday, February 15, 2024, by 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

An applicant webinar will be held on Tuesday, December 12, 2023, from 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time. Registration is required and applicants can register here.

Although not required, applicants are encouraged to schedule a virtual meeting with NFWF program staff to discuss project proposals. Please use the following Microsoft Bookings link to schedule a Microsoft Teams meeting – Book a Meeting Here.
