U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Migratory Bird Program): Inviting applications for ‘Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) program’ to provide matching grants to Neotropical migratory bird conservation projects.

Funding brief: The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) addresses migratory bird population needs on a continental scale and conserves birds throughout their life cycles. The projects our grants support in other countries foster security, generate good will, and improve foreign relations, while sustaining healthy bird populations.

Since 2002, the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act has provided more than $58.5 million in grants to support 510 projects in 36 countries. Partners have contributed an additional $221.9 million, affecting 4.2 million acres of habitat. The networks that have developed as a result of NMBCA funding have evolved into powerful conservation alliances.

The NMBCA program provides matching grants to Neotropical migratory bird conservation projects throughout the Western Hemisphere, with at least 75 percent of funding going to projects outside the United States. The competitive grants require that grant requests be matched by partner contributions at no less than a 3-to-1 ratio.
