America the Beautiful Challenge 

In year three of the ATBC, NFWF has announced that approximately $119 million will be awarded in nationwide funding to conserve, connect, and restore the lands, waters, and wildlife upon which we all depend. NFWF expects to award at least 10% of ATBC grant funding to Tribal Nations. The ATBC seeks to fund projects across the following themes: 

  • Conserving and restoring rivers, coasts, wetlands, and watersheds  
  • Conserving and restoring forests, grasslands and important ecosystems that serve as carbon sinks 
  • Connecting and reconnecting wildlife corridors, large landscapes, watersheds, and seascapes  
  • Improving ecosystem and community resilience to flooding, drought, and other climate-related threats 
  • Expanding access to the outdoors, particularly in underserved communities 

Grant Categories 

Category 1. Implementation Grants  

Category 2. Planning Grants 

Category 3. Sentinel Landscape Grants 

Category 4. National Forest Grants 

Category 5. Private Forests, Rangeland and Farmland Grants
