Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund

The Network for Landscape Conservation is pleased to announce the 2020 funding round of the Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund.

Read the Request for Proposals


All applicants should carefully review the RFP to understand the priorities and requirements of the Catalyst Fund. An Applicant Guidance Document is also available (new this year) as a supplement to the RFP. This document is intended to help applicants determine their fit with the Catalyst Fund and how to submit a strong proposal.

Read the Applicant Guidance Document


A portion of the Fund is reserved for Indigenous-led Partnerships working to advance Indigenous landscape conservation priorities. Specific guidance for such Partnerships is noted throughout the RFP, but also summarized in Section II of the Applicant Guidance Document and—for ease of access—in this stand-alone summary document.

The Network will host two informational webinars for potential applicants. These will provide a brief overview of the Catalyst Fund and RFP, but will be primarily dedicated to responding to questions from participants. Please register and fill out your advance questions:

Webinar 1: Monday, February 10, 2020 at 2 pm ET–View Webinar Recording (note: this recording contains the 15-minute Fund overview presentation)

Webinar 2: Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at 2 pm ET–View Recording of Q&As (note: Fund overview presentation not included in this recording, as it was identical to the presentation in the first webinar)


Once you have carefully determined that your Partnership is a suitable fit for the Catalyst Fund, we invite you to begin the pre-proposal application process:
