GNLCC announces FY16 funding awards for landscape conservation

The Great Northern LCC is pleased to announce the commitment of $600,000 to landscape science, information management, and capacity support for the fiscal year 2016. The list of projects can be viewed at 2016 Funding Allocation.

With GNLCC funds, we are supporting a diverse range of science, capacity and organizational projects through leveraging of ongoing work. This is part of our strategy to move towards a shared information base to inform our collective vision for landscape conservation among partners. We encourage leveraged dollars and programs to support common priorities. Through these projects, we are leveraging our dollars tenfold while strategically targeting our partners priority work and supporting mutual goals for landscape conservation. Priorities and criteria for selection are described in the GNLCC Strategic Conservation Framework and in the 2016 Funding Recommendation.
