USFWS Central Africa Regional Program: Notice of Funding Opportunity for FY 2019

 

 

Dear Conservation Partners and Colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the 2019 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's Central Africa Regional Program.

 

 

French version is forthcoming and will be available...

 

 

Conservation priorities for USFWS support in 2019 will focus on providing front line support to protected areas and capacity development, and addressing regional threats to wildlife.

 

 

Proposals will be accepted for the following priorities:

  • Supporting protected area management
  • Supporting regional wildlife colleges
  • Reducing protected species in the commercial bushmeat trade
  • Creating a new team-based MENTOR Program to increase efforts to counter the growing pressures on wildlife and protected areas from the illegal trafficking of protected species in the commercial bushmeat trade.

 

Please note that only pre-proposals will be accepted for the March 18, 2019 deadline. USFWS will notify applicants of the opportunity to submit a full proposal by April 16, 2019. Please see the NOFO for complete details and the USFWS  How to Apply webpage for all administrative requirements, including Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs).

 

 

USFWS supports wildlife conservation projects in Central Africa through multiple mechanisms, including the funds created by Congressional Acts for the conservation of African elephants, great apes, and marine turtles. Please see the USFWS International Affairs How to Apply page for the NOFOs for all programs. Applicants should review the funding priorities for each NOFO and apply to the programs that align most closely with the objectives of their proposed work.  

 

 

Thank you for your contributions to conservation and your attention to the region's wildlife. We hope that the 2019 NOFOs, the USFWS guidance on Standard Measures of Effectiveness and Threats for Wildlife Conservation in Central Africa, and our outreach efforts associated with these documents will continue to build on the trust, transparency, and good conservation design that USFWS strives for in our partnerships for wildlife conservation in Central Africa. Please forward this message to interested parties and feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
