DUE DATE: May 19, 2023 (APPLICATIONS MUST BE RECEIVED THROUGH GrantSolutions.gov, SEE BELOW)
The Midwest Migratory Bird Program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is pleased to announce that we are requesting proposals from our conservation partners to address critical gaps for conservation of priority migratory bird species.
The Midwest Migratory Bird Conservation Program will consider proposals addressing the following themes. NOTE: Applicants must consult with USFWS Migratory Bird Staff BEFORE submitting an application (see the Notice of Funding Opportunity at the link below for appropriate staff contacts):
- Further understanding of migration, migratory connectivity, migratory threats, wintering ecology, and annual survival for birds moving within and through the Midwest—including local movements of birdsof-the-year during the period between hatching and dispersal/migration. Proposals addressing focal/priority species identified by Joint Venture partnerships in the Midwest are preferred – especially those focused on grassland-dependent species, shorebirds, or aerial insectivores.
- Build capacity for sustainable conservation and monitoring of Neotropical migrants during the nonbreeding season.
- Assess trends, status, limiting factors and /or causes of decline of Great Lakes waterbirds (e.g. King
Rail, Yellow Rail, Herring Gull, Caspian Tern, Common Tern, Black Tern) or shorebirds (e.g. Lesser Yellowlegs, Pectoral Sandpiper, Semipalmated Sandpiper, Short-billed Dowitcher, Dunlin).
