Do you have a project that needs additional support, or an idea for a new conservation project? The Pacific Birds Partnership Grant Program 2022 Request for Proposals is now open. We support projects that align with the goals of our conservation priorities: Oak and Prairie, Hawaiʻi Wetlands and Coastal Wetlands. The application deadline is June 30th.
Migratory Bird Joint Ventures are cooperative, regional partnerships and they accomplish their work when partners work towards common conservation goals. There are many ways to help. We will consider projects that directly conserve habitat, conduct research or develop data layers that inform conservation work, increase capacity, create or support local partnerships, or raise awareness about bird conservation and the connections between birds and people. This year, we are especially interested in projects that benefit birds found in our priority habitats, and/or that are listed out as species with some level of concern within our region from the 3 Billion Birds Initiative, the U.S. Shorebird Conservation Plan, or the NAWCA Priority Species list.
Conservation work should be located in Alaska, Hawaiʻi, or the western portions of Washington, Oregon and northern California. Projects that have a match contribution or show additional partner interest will receive stronger consideration. Grant applications of up to $20,000 will be accepted, but most awards will be in the range of $5,000 to $15,000. Proposals led by Indigenous peoples, organizations, and communities working to advance Indigenous priorities within the scope of this opportunity are particularly encouraged to apply.
We welcome new partners to our grants program. Please contact us if you have questions.
