New England Forests and Rivers Fund 2020 Request for Proposals

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals for the New England Forests and Rivers Fund (NEFRF) to restore and sustain healthy forests and rivers that provide habitat for diverse bird populations, as well as freshwater and diadromous fish populations. The program will advance this goal by investing in projects that:

Strengthen the health of forest systems by improving the management of public and private forestlands to create a mosaic of mixed-age forests in the region;

Provide incentives to strengthen habitat conservation on working forests through flexible  technical assistance that is appropriate for the forest stage(s) being targeted;

Improve the quality of river and stream systems through targeted riparian and stream restoration; 

Reduce barriers to fish passage and increase fish access to high quality habitat; and

Enhance biodiversity of forest and river systems and increase populations of species representative of system health.

Approximately $1.5 million is available this year. Funding is provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the American Forest Foundation, Eversource Energy and the Avangrid Foundation.
