The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals
for the 2011 Native Plant Conservation Initiative (NPCI) grants cycle. The
NPCI grant program is conducted in cooperation with the Plant Conservation
Alliance (PCA), a partnership between the Foundation, ten federal
agencies, and more than 275 non-governmental organizations. PCA provides a
framework and strategy for linking resources and expertise in developing a
coordinated national approach to the conservation of native plants. Since
1995, the NPCI grant program has funded multi-stakeholder projects that
focus on the conservation of native plants and pollinators under any of
the following 6 focal areas: conservation, education, restoration,
research, sustainability, and data linkages.  In 2011, NPCI is 
particularly interested in projects that focus on and benefit eastern 
North American early successional habitat, prairie coteau grasslands, sky 
islands grasslands, deserts, Gunnison sage-grouse, southeastern grasslands 
(especially longleaf pine forest), seabirds, shortgrass prairie, and 
Colorado River fishes.

The deadline for pre-proposals is June 30, 2011.  See
http://www.nps.gov/plants/nfwf/ for more information about the grant
programs including the full request for proposals.
