Grants to New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and educational institutions to enhance habitats and improve water quality throughout the local watershed. Funding is intended for the rehabilitation and conservation of natural areas, corridors, and waterways that support native fish, wildlife and plants, and to contribute to the vitality of the communities in the Delaware River watershed.
Projects must be implemented entirely within the Delaware River watershed, which includes portions of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Organizations located outside the watershed may apply if their project will be conducted entirely within the watershed.
Priority for Conservation Action Grants will be given to projects that collaboratively address one or more of the following Strategic Program Areas.
For more information about these projects priorities, see: https://www.nfwf.org/sites/default/files/2020-02/delaware-river-2020-rfp-final.pdf#page=3
Projects should also incorporate one or more Cross-Program Activities outlined in the Framework: engage and equip the public to support coordinated restoration and protection; facilitate resiliency of natural systems; increase scientific knowledge, monitoring and research needed for successful project implementation; provide technical assistance for restoration and conservation; conserve areas of regional significance in the Delaware River Watershed.
