U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) - Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) on Combating Wildlife Trafficking


Dear Conservation Partners and Colleagues,

The International Affairs Program of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) is pleased to announce its FY 2017 Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) on Combating Wildlife Trafficking. Please see below and visit our website for more information and for Spanish and French versions of the NOFO.

Application Submission Deadline: February 5, 2017

The USFWS is accepting proposals for projects around the world that aim to combat wildlife trafficking. Recognizing the serious threat that wildlife trafficking poses to the conservation of animal and plant species and the national interests of the United States, President Obama issued Executive Order 13648 in 2013. On February 11, 2015, President Obama released the National Strategy for Combating Wildlife Trafficking Implementation Plan to guide and direct the efforts of Federal agencies in executing the Strategy. To complement and facilitate existing efforts, USFWS has issued this NOFO to provide financial assistance to projects that advance counter-wildlife trafficking activities.


Applicants may submit proposals to support any of the Implementation Plan's Objectives. Priority will be given, however, to proposals addressing the following:

- Strengthening the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES)
- Good Governance and Anti-Corruption for Combating Wildlife Trafficking
Africa/Asia Nexus
- Social and Behavior Change Communication Framework for Combating Wildlife Trafficking
- Critically Endangered Species Threatened by Illegal Trade

Please read our Notice of Funding Opportunity, Assistance Award Guidelines, and complete the SF-424 Application for Federal Assistance and the SF-424b Assurances - Non-Construction Programs Form. Send an email with any questions to Daphne Carlson Bremer at CWT@fws.gov.


Sincerely,

Daphne Carlson Bremer, DVM, PhD
