IBA Small Matching Grants Program
Audubon Connecticut is currently seeking proposals from Audubon chapters, landowners, universities, and organizations for projects at identified or potential Important Bird Areas (IBA) that advance Audubon’s priorities for 2014, which include 1) gaining a greater understanding of the abundance and distribution of our species of greatest conservation need within Audubon’s forest focal areas; 2) implementing conservation strategies put forth in IBA Conservation Plans and other strategic plans; and 3) furthering the eastern forest, Atlantic coast, salt marsh and shrubland objectives of Audubon’s Atlantic Flyway Conservation Initiative (http://www.audubon.org/sites/default/files/documents/audubon_strategic_plan_-_web_2012.pdf).
A total of $9,000 in funding is available. Individual projects are eligible for up to $2,000 each and a minimum of 1:1 match of funds, goods or services is required. Special focus is given to proposals under $1,000. IBA Small matching grant funds cannot be used to cover overhead. Proposals will be reviewed by the Audubon Connecticut Science and Bird Conservation Committee. Deadline for submissions is August 29th, 2014.
Emphasis will be on projects at identified IBAs, but requests will be considered for additional sites that may be potential IBAs if funds allow and the project is compelling. IBA conservation plans can be found at http://ct.audubon.org/important-bird-areas-11. For additional information please contact Corrie Folsom-O’Keefe at cfolsom-okeefe@audubon.org or (203) 264-5098 ext. 310.
