Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund
The Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund is intended to accelerate the pace and effective practice of collaborative landscape conservation across the United States. The rapid growth of the collaborative partnership approach represents a fundamental shift in land conservation: from piecemeal and top-down conservation to a more holistic, horizontal, and inclusive approach to conserving the landscapes that sustain us. We must work at the landscape scale to effectively address escalating challenges including habitat loss/fragmentation and climate change, and it is only through robust partnerships that we can be successful at this scale. And there is no time to waste.
The Fund specifically seeks to build critical capacity and forward momentum in landscape conservation partnerships by supporting the key building block activities and collaborative process that move partnerships forward. The inaugural 2019 Grant Cycle has closed, and we are very pleased to announce the first cohort of Catalyst Fund grantees.
Check back here in early 2020 for the announcement of the second grant cycle and an updated Request for Proposals.
