Dear Friends and Colleagues,
The Wallace Center, through a subaward agreement from the U.S. EPA’s Gulf of Mexico Division, is launching a Request for Applications to solicit applicants to apply for funding to improve environmental outcomes in the Mississippi River Region.
The goals of this subaward program are to:
This is a fantastic opportunity to get federal dollars to organizations in the Mississippi River Basin to support farmer conservation leaders. The Wallace Center will provide subawards ranging from $75,000 to $250,000 to a maximum of 20 organizations.
Proposed activities for this program must fall entirely within the Upper and Lower Mississippi River Region (Gulf drainage portions of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi, Louisiana).
As part of this program, the Wallace Center will host three informational webinars to introduce the program, discuss grantee support and compliance requirements, and answer questions about the application process itself.
The first informational call is this Wednesday, March 22nd, at 12 PM CT.
The Wallace Center is accepting concept notes (a brief outline of a project idea, rather than a full proposal) through May 1, to be assessed competitively against other applications by a review panel. Selected applicants will be invited to the next phase of the project –the co-design phase– during which selected grantees will design full proposals with support from Wallace Center, program advisors, and other grantees.
