The North American Wetlands Conservation Act

The North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) of 1989:

  • Provides matching grants to organizations and individuals who have developed partnerships to carry out wetlands conservation projects in the United States, Canada, and Mexico for the benefit of wetlands-associated migratory birds and other wildlife.
  • Consists of two grants types, Standard and Small.
  • Requires at least a 50/50 non-Federal match for each proposal.
  • The 2013 grant instructions are now available on the NAWCA Web site.

Accomplishments

The CVJV partnership has earned an impressive record of accomplishment since its inception in 1988, and is making great progress towards meeting the objectives identified in its 2006 Implementation Plan.
