NFWF Press Release | March 1, 2023
On March 1, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) announced the release of the 2023 America the Beautiful Challenge (ATBC) Request for Proposals (RFP). Hosted by NFWF, the ATBC is a public-private grant program designed to support locally led, voluntary ecosystem restoration projects. The REPI Program serves as one of the federal partners on the ATBC, along with the Department of the Interior and the Department of Agriculture’s U.S. Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service.
In its second year, the ATBC will allocate $116 million to projects that conserve, connect, and restore critical lands, waters, and wildlife. Of this $116 million, the REPI Program will contribute $5 million to ATBC projects that benefit sentinel landscapes or other critical habitats outside military installations and ranges.
