Forwarding information on a call for proposals. Note that cycads are 
mentioned! We have a few natives in the continental U.S., more in Puerto 
Rico and Hawai'i, and certainly some highly endemic and particularly 
threatened natives in Guam, etc.  So I encourage you to put on your 
thinking caps for U.S. natives and submit a proposal.

Here's more info to go with the message below:

SOS provides two types of grants:
? Threatened Species Grants (25,000 to 800,000 $US) for which calls with 
specific Strategic Directions are issued on a regular basis. Average 
project size is expected to be 100,000 $US. Projects above 200,000 $US 
will be awarded on an exceptional basis.
? Rapid Action Grants (up to 25,000 $US) available on an ongoing basis and 
supporting conservation actions in case of emergency situations. These 
grants will be awarded to support a special class of projects aimed at 
addressing immediate threats that require targeted specific action, with 
high chance of generating rapid positive results.

Deadline: June 22nd, 2012
