Network for Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund

Network for Landscape Conservation

Deadline: April 26, 2024. The Network for Landscape Conservation is pleased to share the 2024 Request for Proposals for the Catalyst Fund, which is made possible through the generous support of the Doris Duke Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation. The Catalyst Fund strives to accelerate the pace and practice of collaborative landscape conservation and stewardship across the United States by investing in Landscape Partnerships. The Fund couples financial support (through a competitive grant program) with capacity building support (through in-depth Peer Learning) to catalyze Partnership efforts to achieve long-term conservation and stewardship goals. A portion of the Fund is reserved specifically to advance Tribal-led Partnerships. For more information, visit:

Funding Amount
Partnerships may request a one or two-year grant of up to $25,000
Matching Funds
For the Indigenous-led Partnership portion of the Fund matching funds are not required, but proposals will be viewed favorably if they demonstrate: 1) in-kind support from partners (time, meeting space, other); 2) additional direct funding from other sources; and/or 3) a strategy for leveraging a Catalyst Fund grant to attract new funding to the Partnership.
Indigenous-led Partnership applicants in the American West are also eligible to apply under IRS Code, Section 7871. The American West is defined to include the following states: Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.
