What do you need to reach your goals?

Soil and Water Conservation Districts are eligible for several kinds of funding.


The Pulling Together Initiative, a program of the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), is intended to help local communities throughout the country promote the conservation of natural habitats by preventing, managing, or eradicating invasive and noxious plant species. This program provides grants to develop or advance Cooperative Weed Management Areas and Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas. Priority will be given to projects that include partnerships with a wide cross-section of invasive species stakeholders including private landowners, local nonprofit organizations, state and local governments, and federal agencies. Grant awards will range from $10,000 to $100,000. All grants require a minimum 1:1 match of cash or contributed goods and services from non-federal sources. Nonprofit organizations, government agencies, Indian tribes, and educational institutions are eligible to apply. Pre-proposals must be submitted online by July 12, 2017; full proposals are due September 19, 2017. Visit the NFWF website to review the Request for Proposals.
