U.S. Standard NAWCA Grants
NAWCA Standard Grant applications ask very specific questions and it is important to provide complete and detailed answers. Read the proposal instructions carefully and ask a Pacific Birds Partnership Coordinator if you need assistance.
Technical Question #1 on the application asks about waterfowl species. You will be asked to list and enumerate waterfowl that your project will benefit: high priority waterfowl, priority waterfowl, and other waterfowl species. These species are listed in the instructions and you can also see them below.
Technical Question #2 asks about non-waterfowl, wetland-associated species. You will be asked to list the species found in the Bird Conservation Region where the project is located. Not sure what BCR you are in? See the map below.
Technical Question #3 asks how your proposal aligns with the conservation priorities of wetlands areas in the four major national bird conservation plans. The instructions link to those four plans. In Part B, you can refer to the priorities of more regional plans (such as the Alaska Shorebird Conservtion Plan).
Technical Question #4 is about wetlands. The proposal instructions provide links to the National Wetlands Inventory (NWI) Mapper and suggest contacting your Joint Venture Coordinator for more information at the local level.
Technical Questions #5-7. Stay tuned as we work on tips and resources about these questions, based on the most recent proposal instructions.
