The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) will award grants to improve the health of coral reef systems. Grants will be awarded to reduce land-based sources of pollution, advance coral reef fisheries management, increase capacity for reef-scale restoration and to support management in their efforts to increase the natural recovery and resiliency of coral reef systems.
The Coral Reef Conservation Fund is a partnership with the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Coral Reef Conservation Program (CRCP) and receives additional funding support from the USDA National Resource Conservation Service. The Coral Reef Conservation Fund expects to have up to $1,500,000 available for funding for this grants cycle.
Average grant awards will range from $60,000 to $250,000, however there is no maximum or minimum requirement. Projects should be 12-24 months in duration.
