Grant Opportunity - 2025 National Coastal Wetlands Conservation Grant Program (USFWS)

Coastal wetlands are valued because they protect against flooding, help maintain water quality, and provide habitat for fish and wildlife. Coastal environments are also important economically, generating billions of dollars annually through recreational and commercial fishing, boating, and tourism. The NCWCG Program is co-administered by the Service’s Coastal Program and by the Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program (WSFR). The mission of the Coastal Program is to achieve voluntary habitat conservation by providing technical and financial assistance, in collaboration with partners, for the benefit of Federal trust species. WSFR’s mission is to work through partnerships to conserve and manage fish and wildlife and their habitats for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations. WSFR’s vision is of healthy, diverse, and accessible fish and wildlife populations that offer recreation, economic activity, and other societal benefits, in addition to sustainable ecological functions. WSFR’s guiding principle is that society benefits from conservation-based management of fish and wildlife and their habitats and opportunities to use and enjoy them. The NCWCG Program aligns with the Coastal Program’s mission and with WSFR’s mission, vision, and guiding principle. The NCWCG Program also supports two of the Administration’s priorities including improving climate change adaptation and increasing resilience (through habitat restoration, land acquisition, and other actions) and strengthening the economy (by supporting outdoor recreation activities). Many of the projects conducted under the NCWCG Program directly or indirectly support Executive Order 14008: Tackling the Climate Crisis at Home and Abroad.
