2019 National Urban and Community Forestry Grant Program USFS

Deadline Passed 04/30/2018. Deadline Unknown for 2019. The National Urban and Community Forestry Advisory Council advises the Secretary of Agriculture on the status of the nation’s urban and community forests and related natural resources. The Council seeks to establish sustainable urban and community forests, by encouraging communities of all sizes to manage and protect their natural resources, which, if well managed, improves the public’s health, well-being, economic vitality, and creates resilient ecosystems for present and future generations. The Council recommends urban and community forestry projects that have national or multi-state application and impact through the U.S. Forest Service’s competitive Urban and Community Forestry Challenge Cost-Share Grant Program. A proposal’s content must meet the Urban and Community Forestry program authorities as designated by Congress in the Cooperative Forestry Assistance Act, (Section 9 PDF, pp. 19-24) State & Private Cooperative Forestry Handbook of Programs and the annual criteria set forth by the Council. A listing of the previously funded projects can be viewed at Urban Forestry South list of past NUCFAC grants. Funding Opportunity #: USDA-FS-UCF-01-2019

Citizen Science Competitive Funding Program USFS

The USDA Forest Service is responsible for managing national forests and grasslands in a way that delivers benefits to the public, strengthens communities, and sustains healthy ecosystems. In 2018, the agency piloted the CitSci Fund to promote collaboration in support of these goals. Together, partners, volunteers, and the Forest Service are using the data gathered to shape how we manage forests and conserve resources. The CitSci Fund is a collaborative approach to resource management – each project will have one Forest Service Project Lead and one Partner Project Lead, and demonstrate how volunteers are meaningfully involved. The CitSci Fund supports Forest Service National Priority #3: Promoting shared stewardship by increasing partnerships and volunteerism.

Cooperative Ecosystem Studies Unit, Pacific Northwest CESU USGS

Deadline passed 4/16/2019. Deadline 2020 unknown.The US Geological Survey is offering a funding opportunity to a CESU Partner for research on the Oregon Spotted Frog. The overarching objective is to provide high-quality demographic information for use by management agencies and other interested parties and to assess management actions. Specific questions are 1) how does seasonal survival of frogs relate to changes in water level; 2) what is population growth rate following pond creation; 3) what are positive and negative effects of beaver on frogs (for use as a restoration tool); 4) What is the range of individual survival for this species in the wild; and 5) what are the positive and negative effects of bullfrog removal on this species?

Resilient Communities 2019 Request for Proposals Wells Fargo, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation

Deadline Passed 02/19/2019. Deadline Unknown for 2020. Wells Fargo and NFWF have partnered to create the Resilient Communities program. Through improvements to natural features and enhanced community capacity, the program will help communities prepare for future impacts associated with sea-level rise, sustain appropriate water quantity and quality and enhance forest conservation. By taking advantage of natural features like wetlands, resilient shorelines, urban tree canopies, natural forests and healthy upstream watersheds, communities can accrue quality of life benefits today, enhance fish and wildlife resources and help prepare for foreseeable resilience challenges. The program places special emphasis on equity, social inclusion and helping traditionally low- and moderate-income communities build capacity for resilience planning and investments in “greener” infrastructure. It also emphasizes supporting American Indian/Alaska Native communities and Indigenous Peoples whose livelihoods and economies rely on their self-determined management of water, land and other natural resources and infrastructure that will be impacted increasingly by sea level rise, drought, flooding and fires.
