Grants ranging from $1,500 to $15,000 to USA nonprofits supporting wildlife sanctuaries or refuges, to enhance the effectiveness of the organizations. Funding is intended to aid organizations in strengthening their expertise to develop and execute projects, expand and increase their capacity and skills, gain and build community recognition around the refuge and refuge Friends organizations, build long-term relationships, increase overall capacity, and encourage the sharing of expertise within the Friends networks.
The main goal of the grant program is to foster active, vibrant and effective Friends partnerships through four distinct proposal categories.
1. Nonprofit Capacity Building Grants
2. Project Specific Grants
3. Peer-to-Peer Coaching (P2P)
4. Special Initiative: Public Access Enhancements and Increasing Hunting and Fishing Experiences on National Wildlife Refuges
Funds for Peer-to-Peer Coaching may be used for:
- Friends travel and lodging expenses (GSA per diem rates for lodging and actual meals up to GSA per diem rate; IRS volunteer mileage rate of .14c/mile for driving personal vehicle; economy nonrefundable airfare)
- Training facility fees (only if appropriate free facilities are not available)
- Specialized trainer, consultant, or facilitator fees
- Training supplies such as flip charts, poster boards, copying expenses
NFWF funds can be used to pay for a student intern who is currently enrolled in an educational, career development or job training program through a partnership organization. The partnering organization must cover tort and liability for the intern and the intern’s work must directly support the capacity building and/or projects of the Friends organization. The application must identify the intern’s institution or organization.
