About this funder:



Alaska Fish and Wildlife Fund

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is requesting proposals to further conservation of speci​​​es and habitats in Alaska. Our conservation strategy for Alaska follows NFWF’s institutional outcome focused approach to species conservation, and includes three primary focal geographies: the Yukon-Kuskokwim Region, Cook Inlet/Matanuska-Susitna watershed, and Alaska North Slope. Projects outside of these geographies that support fishery conservation and involve Alaska Natives on National Forest lands may also be considered on a case by case basis, particularly those projects targeting Pacific salmon protection, enhancement and restoration initiatives through the Alaska Fish Habitat Partnerships and/or partnerships that expand access to recreational fishing and wildlife viewing/interpretation.

Program funds will be allocated to projects that: 

  • ​​Achieve or substantially lead to measurable on-the-ground conservation outcomes;  
  • Fill key information gaps through assessments and strategic monitoring that result in or substantially lead to measureable management actions.

Support for this program is provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), and various other sources. Grants may be awarded using one or more of these sources of funding.
