  1. Linking habitat and population objectives and integrating multidisciplinary conservation goals.
  2. Quantification and Evaluation of Relationships between Species and Landscape Endpoints for Priority Systems
  3. Characterization of Flow
  4. Evaluation and Assessment of Incentives for Natural Resource Management on Private Lands: Identification of Economic and Cultural Endpoints/Indicators
  5. Targeting Science Need Themes in the GCPO LCC’s Integrated Science Agenda

Up to $350,000 is available to fund 2-year projects in each of 5 topic areas ($1.75 million total). Additional details on the format and timetable for submitting proposals can be found in the full RFP announcement. We encourage broad participation from groups and individuals concerned with natural and cultural resource issues in the GCPO region.  Individuals from federal, state, tribal, local, commercial, non-profit, and educational organizations are eligible for funding as investigators or cooperators.  Cost share or in-kind match is encouraged but not required.
