NFWF Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund 2023 Request For Proposals Now Open

November 22, 2022 Longleaf Pine Christine Ambrose LSF

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) has announced the release of the 2023 request for proposals under the Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund.

The Longleaf Landscape Stewardship Fund is a public-private partnership supported with Federal funding from USDA’s Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service; the Department of Defense; the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service; and private funding from International Paper’s Forestland Stewards Partnership, Southern Company and Altria Group.

This request for proposals (RFP) expects to award approximately $16.9 million in federal and private sector funding in support of projects that restore, enhance and conserve longleaf pine on private and public lands to improve wildlife habitat and water quality. Limited funding also is available to support bottomland hardwood restoration and enhancement activities as outlined within the RFP.

In pursuit of habitat and species restoration goals, applicants are encouraged to prioritize projects that also address co-benefits and engage local communities and historically underserved landowners:

  • Conservation Co-Benefits: Projects that will implement habitat restoration or improvement practices that benefit wildlife while also sequestering carbon and/or protecting and improving water quantity or quality are encouraged.
  • Community Impact and Engagement: Projects that incorporate outreach to communities, foster community engagement, and pursue collaborative management leading to measurable conservation benefits are encouraged.

All proposals must specifically address how projects will directly and measurably contribute to the longleaf pine and associated species goals outlined in the Longleaf Forest and Rivers Business Plan.

Full proposals are due Thursday, February 2, 2023 by 11:59 PM Eastern Time.

An applicant webinar will be held on Thursday, December 8, 2022 at 10:30am Eastern Time [Register here]
