Shell Marine Habitat Program-alaska
The Program is a partnership between Shell Oil Company and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation. It provides grants to catalyze conservation and restoration projects that benefit marine and coastal habitats in Alaska. The Programís initial focus is on the coastal and marine habitat of North Aleutian Basin, North Slope Borough, and Northwest Arctic Borough areas. Proposals from outside these geographic areas will not be accepted at this time. Preference is given to projects that include measurable outcomes linked to project activities and those that address the needs of species characteristic of the Alaskan estuarine, coastal, and marine areas and are consistent with the goals of established state, regional, and/or federal resource conservation plans. Also given preference are those that build new or enhance existing partnerships with local communities, nonprofits, and local, state, and federal government agencies; include specific provisions for long-term maintenance, management, and protection as appropriate; and offer opportunities for hands-on volunteer participation. Grant awards require a minimum 1:1 match of cash or contributed goods and services; a match of over 2:1 is encouraged. The deadline is for electronic pre-proposals. The minimum grants amount is $30,000. Additional information can be found on the Web site of the National Fish and Wildlife Federation Foundation.
