Resources and Funding Opportunities for RCPs

Please share other funding opportunities and resources by emailing Bill Labich, Coordinator for The RCP Network, or by posting in our LinkedIn Group.

Funded through a grant from the Jessie B. Cox Trust, the RCP Capital Campaign Training and Assistance Program (TAP) is helping three RCPs launch major new funding initiatives, and offered two scholarships for RCPs to attend the five-day Yale Conservation Finance Workshop in June. And thanks to a grant from the Open Space Institute’s Resilient Landscapes Initiative with leadership funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Trust, Highstead worked with the North Quabbin Regional Landscape Partnership to incorporate new climate resilience science and thinking into its biodiversity conservation priorities mapping exercise. The RCP Network is also hosting a science-to-practice workshop on September 10th for RCPs in the Connecticut River Watershed in order to connect RCPs to new conservation science being assembled by the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Collaborative (NALCC) and hear about the new CT River Watershed Landscape Conservation Design Pilot. This project is funded through a grant/cooperative agreement from the U.S. Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service.
