Grant Opportunity - Roots Program (Point Blue Conservation Science)

Point Blue is currently inviting proposals for projects in San Diego County that improve and restore wildlife, fish, and pollinator habitat on working lands through our Roots Program. Working Lands broadly includes landscapes that are stewarded for food and cultural resources, including rural and urban farms, annual and perennial row crops, vineyards, orchards, livestock grazing lands, non-industrial forestlands, and active school and community gardens.

The intent of the Roots Program is to deliver wildlife-friendly community-based and community centered restoration projects on farms, ranches, and other working landscapes across California. The overall goals of the Roots Program are to: 1) Prioritize funding habitat restoration projects that result in multiple benefits to wildlife and pollinators. Awards can be supplemental funding for existing projects or fund new projects with no match requirement. 2) Focus resources toward communities who are currently underserved due to both historic and current structural barriers to conservation.

Proposed projects must be completed, and funds expended by December 31, 2026. Projects are required to be protected and durable for at least 15 years post implementation

The deadline to submit an application for consideration is July 15th 2024.
