The purpose of the Landscape Conservation Catalyst Fund is to help accelerate the pace and effective practice of place-based, collaborative landscape conservation across the United States. The Fund specifically seeks to build critical capacity and forward momentum in landscape conservation partnerships by supporting the key building block activities and collaborative processes that move partnerships forward.
Through generous support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Catalyst Fund will distribute approximately $335,000 in funding through competitive grants to landscape conservation partnerships in 2019. Pre-proposals are due by 9 pm ET on Friday, April 26th.
We are pleased to have a portion of the Catalyst Fund dedicated to Indigenous-led landscape conservation partnerships that primarily serve Indigenous communities.
