Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribal governments, and educational institutions to conserve habitats and species in Alaska. Funding is intended to support projects that will bring out significant conservation outcomes. Grants will also support projects that will fill key information gaps through assessments and strategic monitoring that will result in improved management actions. Primary geographic areas include the Alaska North Slope, Cook Inlet/Matanuska-Susitna Basin, and Chugach National Forest. Projects outside of these geographies within the State of Alaska that support habitat restoration activities that have a direct benefit to Pacific salmon and/or projects that fill data gaps that will directly benefit Pacific salmon management, will be considered on a case by case basis.

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals to further the conservation of species and habitats in Alaska. The Alaska Fish and Wildlife Fund (AFWF) invests in projects that achieve or substantially lead to measurable on-the-ground conservation outcomes, and fill key information gaps through assessments and strategic monitoring that result in improved management actions. 

All proposals must specifically address how projects will directly and measurably contribute to at least one of the priorities. 

  • Alaska North Slope: The primary efforts of the AFWF in the Alaska North Slope are filling key knowledge gaps and mitigating direct threats to species populations. 
  • Cook Inlet and Matanuska-Susitna Basin: The AFWF strives to support comprehensive watershed management approaches to conserving fish and wildlife in the Cook Inlet and Matanuska-Susitna Basin regions. 
  • Chugach National Forest: NFWF and its partners will be implementing restoration projects that will improve aquatic organism passage for the benefit of Pacific salmon, while engaging Alaskan Natives on National Forest lands.
  • Pacific Salmon: The AFWF supports Pacific salmon projects in collaboration with Alaska Fish Habitat Partnerships, and/or other watershed-based partnerships with USFWS and USFS throughout the entire State of Alaska. Projects that fill information gaps to inform conservation actions and improve Pacific salmon subsistence management, as well as projects that protect, enhance and restore essential fish habitat to ensure long-term viability of the stock complex are of high priority.
