NFWF Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund Now Accepting Proposals for 2020

November 20, 2020 Sunshine Through Pine

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation has today announced the release of the 2021 request for proposals under the Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund.

The Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund is a public-private partnership supported with Federal funding from USDA’s Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service; the Department of Defense; the US Fish and Wildlife Service; and, private funding from International Paper’s Forestland Stewards Partnership, Southern Company, Altria Group, the Arbor Day Foundation and The Orton Foundation, an affiliate of The Moore Charitable Foundation, founded by Louis Bacon.

In 2018, NFWF’s board of directors adopted the Business Plan: Longleaf Forests and Rivers. The longleaf pine component of this 10-year plan builds upon the efforts of the America’s Longleaf Restoration Initiative and includes a goal of restoring, enhancing or maintaining three million acres of longleaf pine habitat to improve populations of the species dependent on this ecosystem.

The plan also outlines goals for the red-cockaded woodpecker, gopher tortoise, Bachman’s sparrow, and northern bobwhite, species that are representative of a broader suite of wildlife that will also benefit from a healthy longleaf pine ecosystem.

This request for proposals (RFP) expects to award approximately $4.3 million in federal and private sector funding in support of projects that restore, enhance and maintain longleaf pine on private and public lands to improve wildlife habitat and water quality. In addition, some funding is available to support bottomland hardwood restoration and enhancement within specific geographies outlined with the RFP. 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 4, 2021 by 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

An applicant webinar will be held on Wednesday, December 2, 2020 at 3:00pm Eastern Time, registration required: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/2017117163717794061
