The North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) encourages and enables international partnerships that conserve wetlands and wetland dependent migratory birds and other fish and wildlife in Canada, Mexico and the United States. Proposals for these projects describe how partners will protect, restore,enhance and manage wetland habitats across North America. Funds from non-U.S.Federal sources must equal the awarded NAWCA funds (1:1 match). Both cash and in-kind (dependent upon eligibility)match are allowed. Grant periods are 1-2 years. The exact amount of funding that will be available for any given year is unknown. By law, 30-60% of the annual NAWCA appropriation must be spent on wetland conservation projects in Canada and Mexico. The North American Wetlands Conservation Council determines the amount of funding for each country each year. Proposals are submitted to the USFWS Division of Bird Habitat Conservation,administrators of the Program, using the Solicitation Package found at http://birdhabitat.fws.gov.
