Hope to see you there!

The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Project Spotlight series is an effort to share lessons learned, challenges and opportunities in implementation through discussions with grantees who have recently completed, or are close to completing, a NFWF grant. Grantees with expertise in a common topic join together to reflect on their experiences and answer audience questions.  

This year we are organizing a series of five Spotlights focusing on the unique challenges of regional collaborations:  

Diverse Partnerships in Regional Collaborations (upcoming)

Past Project Spotlights:

Financing Strategies for Regional Initiatives

Regional Scale Delivery Models for Agriculture

Nonprofit Partners in Regional Collaborations

Recordings of these and other Project Spotlights can be found on our website,

The US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Chesapeake Bay Program (CBP) has a long-standing partnership, through a cooperative agreement, with the National Fish and Wildlife (NFWF) to provide direct financial support to accomplish both:

–          The Small Watershed Grant (SWG) program that promotes community-based efforts to develop conservation strategies to protect and restore the diverse natural resources of the Chesapeake Bay.

–          The Innovative Nutrient and Sediment Reduction (INSR) grant program that support efforts with the Chesapeake Bay watershed to accelerate nutrient and sediment reductions with innovative, sustainable, and cost-effective approaches.
