Network for Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund

Network for Landscape Conservation

Deadline passed. Most recent deadline: April 21, 2023. The Catalyst Fund strives to accelerate the pace and practice of collaborative landscape conservation across the United States by investing in Landscape Conservation Partnerships. The Fund couples financial support (through a competitive grant program) with capacity-building support (through in-depth Peer Learning) to catalyze Partnerships to achieve long-term conservation goals. A portion of the Fund is reserved specifically to advance Indigenous landscape conservation priorities. We especially invite Partnerships that are led by Indigenous peoples, organizations, and communities to apply. Learn more and apply here.
