Long Island Sound Futures Fund

Deadline: April 9, 2012

The Long Island Sound Study (LISS), in partnership with the EPA, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), invites your submission of a proposal to the LISFF 2012 to help accelerate the restoration and protection of Long Island Sound, a nationally recognized resource of cultural, ecological, and economic importance.

The goal of the LISFF 2012 is to provide funds to accelerate implementation of the LISS and its recently adopted Action Agenda. The Fund seeks to achieve this goal through collaborative, results-oriented actions and strategic partnerships that contribute to the advancement of the LISS’s restoration and protection goals.

At the time of this announcement, the LISS partners anticipate awarding approximately $1 million in grants through this solicitation, although the final total award amount is dependent upon the availability of federal and non-federal funds. Grant awards will be made in two categories: Large grants between $20,000 and $200,000 and mini-grants between $3,000 and $10,000.

Grant awards support projects that span one year to 15 months. Eligible applicants include: non-profit 501(c) organizations; state, tribal, and local governments; and academic and educational institutions.
