Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, Indian tribes, and educational institutions in multiple states to conserve habitats for pollinating wildlife. Applicants must submit a pre-proposal before applying. Priority is given to proposals that benefit the monarch butterfly.
Grant funding will be directed to projects that benefit the monarch butterfly and other at-risk native insect pollinators within the monarch butterfly range in the United States. East of the Rocky Mountains, priority will be given to projects within the monarch butterfly’s eastern migratory flyway, including the 16 states of Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas and Wisconsin. West of the Rocky Mountains, priority will be given to projects on or adjacent to working lands, important monarch butterfly overwintering sites, and USFS lands in these 11 states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, Wyoming. Please note that since the Pollinator Fund’s inception in 2015, no funds have been awarded to projects occurring entirely outside the priority states.
The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) is soliciting proposals to advance pollinator conservation. The goal of the Monarch Butterfly and Pollinators Conservation Fund (Pollinator Fund) is to protect, conserve, and increase habitat for the monarch butterfly and other pollinators. The majority of funding will support projects that benefit the monarch butterfly, but projects that address demonstrated needs for other at-risk native insect pollinator species are also eligible. The most competitive projects will demonstrate clear benefits to both the monarch butterfly and other at-risk native insect pollinators.
Grants will be awarded in two categories:

Funding in this category will support on-the-ground work to increase the quality, quantity and connectivity of habitat for the monarch butterfly and other native insect pollinators.
Applicants in this category should define a step-by-step restoration plan including site preparation, equipment used, planting techniques, size of the project area, description of target native plant community, and maintenance plan (e.g., prescribed burning, mowing, grazing schedules). If preparing a proposal that includes collecting or propagating native plants, applicants should describe the intended use of the seed or seedlings.
