Statement: National Fish and Wildlife Foundation opens applications for 'America the Beautiful Challenge' grants

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Biden administration announced on Wednesday a request for proposals for a grant program aimed at funding critical conservation and recreation projects across the country. The “America the Beautiful Challenge” grants will fund conservation and restoration projects for rivers, coasts, wetlands, grasslands and forests, among other critical ecosystems. In line with President Joe Biden’s America the Beautiful Initiative, grants will also help connect wildlife habitats through land and water corridors. A wide range of entities, including state and tribal authorities, territories, local groups and non-governmental organizations, will be eligible for the grant program, which is largely funded by the bipartisan Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act enacted in late 2021.
