2002 Unified Request for Proposals (including Plant Conservation Alliance
projects funded under the Native Plant Conservation Initiative Program)

PROJECT PROPOSALS DUE: August 20, 2001 (November 6, 2001 for the Pulling
Together Initiative)

We are pleased to report that due to the last seven years' successful
partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), we
expect to be able to fund additional plant conservation projects in 2002.
Once again we will be emphasizing on-the-ground conservation projects
which provide immediate results and benefits. These model projects
illustrate the breadth and capabilities of our many plant conservation
partnerships and provide additional momentum to build both internal and
external support. Building on three years of success, the Native Plant
Conservation Initiative is an ongoing and highly visible flagship program
of the NFWF.

Using feedback from past grantees, the National Fish and Wildlife
Foundation has changed some of the grant guidelines & timelines. Some of
the changes include:

- New timeline. The due date is August 20, 2001 for most programs and
notification of selection December 20, 2001.  General Conservation &
Pulling Together have different timelines, please see "Partnership
Programs" for more information.  Please note that for most programs, this
is a request for proposals for projects starting December 21, 2001 and
ending 12 months from initiation, no later than 09/30/03 (Dates vary
depending on funding program, see application for more information).

- New documentation of challenge funds. In the past, all cash Challenge
Funds had to be sent directly to the Foundation. This is no longer
necessary. Challenge Funds may now be documented by donor letters.
Successful applicants will be advised how to document challenge funds
without having to send funds directly to the Foundation.

- New application/administration restriction. Forest Service units cannot
apply for or administer Forest Service funds under this RFP.
