WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 11, 2023) – The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced the release of the 2024 Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Fund.

This year, the program will award $500,000 in grants to projects that achieve or substantially lead to measurable on-the-ground conservation outcomes and fill key information gaps through assessments and strategic monitoring that result in improved habitat or population management actions. The program also works to conduct outreach to Native Alaskan communities to broaden engagement and conservation stewardship of natural resources, and to foster indigenous ecological knowledge sharing that develops proactive management strategies.

Alaska Fish and Wildlife Fund grant proposals are due October 26, 2023, and the full RFP can be found here. An applicant webinar will be held September 28, 2023, at 12:00 p.m. Alaska Time.

In 2024, the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Fund seeks projects in the following priority geographies:

  • Alaska North Slope
  • Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta
  • Cook Inlet/Matanuska-Susitna Basin/Kodiak Archipelago
  • Chugach and Tongass National Forests

All proposals will be screened for relevance, accuracy, completeness and compliance with NFWF and funding source policies. Proposals will then be evaluated based on the extent to which they meet the evaluation criteria found in the RFP.

Funding for the Alaska Fish and Wildlife Fund 2024 RFP is provided by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and U.S. Forest Service. Additional information about the program can be found here.
