The Network for Landscape Conservation is pleased to announce the 2021 funding round of the Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund.

Read the Request for Proposals

The Catalyst Fund strives to accelerate the pace and practice of landscape conservation across the United States by making strategic investments in strengthening the collaborative capacity and process of place-based, community-grounded Landscape Conservation Partnerships.

A portion of the Catalyst Fund is dedicated to supporting Indigenous leadership in landscape conservation. We especially invite Partnerships that are led by Indigenous peoples, organizations, and communities to apply.

Interested applicants should carefully review the above RFP as well as the Applicant Guidance Document to best understand their fit with the Fund and how to submit a strong proposal. Once you are familiar with the RFP and the Applicant Guidance Document, we invite you to begin the application process:
