Grants starting at $50,000 to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and educational institutions to promote the preservation of the monarch butterfly, as well as other at-risk pollinator species. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal prior to a full application.
The most competitive projects will demonstrate clear benefits to both the monarch butterfly and other at-risk native insect pollinators. Grants will be awarded in two categories:
- Technical Assistance for Private Working Lands
- Habitat Improvement
For more details about these categories please see: https://www.nfwf.org/monarch/Documents/2019MonarchRFP.pdf#page=2
The goal of the monarch Butterfly and Pollinators Conservation Fund (Pollinator Fund) is to protect, conserve, and increase habitat for the Monarch butterfly and other pollinators. The majority of funding will support projects that benefit the monarch butterfly, but projects that address demonstrated needs for other at-risk native insect pollinator species are also eligible. For eligible species definitions please see: https://www.nfwf.org/monarch/Documents/2019MonarchRFP.pdf#page=4
Grant funding will be directed to projects that benefit the monarch butterfly and other at-risk native insect pollinators within the monarch butterfly range in the United States. East of the Rocky Mountains, priority will be given to projects within the monarch butterfly’s eastern migratory flyway, including the 15 states of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Texas, and Wisconsin. In the West, priority will be given to projects on or adjacent to working lands, important monarch butterfly overwintering sites, and U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management lands.
All proposals must specifically address how the proposed project will directly and measurably contribute to the accomplishment of the Fund’s goals as outlined in the Monarch Butterfly Business Plan. Please see the Business Plan in Supporting Documents, below.
