The following organizations have open grant opportunities:
- Bay Watershed Education and Training (B-WET) Program, NOAA
Deadline: April 16, 2008
NOAA B-WET is an environmental education program that promotes locally relevant, experiential watershed learning in the K-12 environment.
Multistate Conservation Grant Program (MSCGP)
Deadline: May 2, 2008
The MSCGP provides $6 million annually for sport fish and wildlife projects that benefit the state fish and wildlife agencies. Projects must benefit sport fish, wild birds, and/or wild mammals; and must benefit at least 26 states, a majority of states in a USFWS region, or Regional Associations.
The U.S. Department of Energy National Institute for Climatic Change Research
Deadline for pre-proposals: May 16, 2008
Proposed research is requested that would answer important questions about potential effects of contemporary climatic change on the structure and functioning of important U.S. terrestrial and coastal ecosystems, or that would answer important questions about possible feedbacks from terrestrial ecosystems to changes in climate or atmospheric composition.
The Kodak American Greenways Awards Program
Deadline: June 15, 2008
Eastman Kodak, The Conservation Fund, and the National Geographic Society provide small grants to stimulate the planning and design of greenways in communities throughout America.
NOAA-NMFS Comparative Analysis of Marine Ecosystem Organization (CAMEO)
Deadline: June 17, 2008
CAMEO aims to strengthen the scientific basis for an ecosystem approach to stewardship of ocean and coastal resources and ecosystems. To fulfill this purpose, CAMEO will assist policy makers and resource managers to make ecosystem-science based decisions that fulfill policy goals and management objectives of society. The program will support research to understand complex dynamics controlling productivity, behavior, population connectivity, climate variability and anthropogenic pressures. It envisages the use of a diverse array of ecosystem models, comparative analyses of managed and unmanaged areas, and ecosystem-scale mapping in support of research, forecasting and decision support. Proposals are requested for 1-2 year projects for initial modeling, retrospective, and pilot studies.
Assistance from the National Park Service for Water Trails projects.
Deadline: August 1, 2008
"If you're working on restoring a river, building a trail, or making an urban park flourish, we'd love to talk with you about ways we might be able to work together."
