The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act (NMBCA) promotes long-term conservation of Neotropical migratory birds and their habitats through a competitive grants program, by: sparking partnership-based conservation, supporting hundreds of public-private collaborations; energizing local, on-the-ground conservation efforts; achieving habitat protection and other critical bird conservation activities in 36 countries; and building conservation capacity in local organizations. The goals of the Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act include perpetuating healthy bird populations, providing financial resources for bird conservation, and fostering international cooperation. Because the greatest need is south of the U.S. border, at least 75 percent of the funding supports projects outside the United States. The grants program requires a partner-to-grant dollar match of 3 to 1. Proposals to the NMBCA porgram should demostrate how activities of partners would encourage sustainable projects and demonstrate strong demand and awareness of these resources on a continental scale and conserve birds throughout their life cycles. NMBCA proposals contribute to efforts to support climate resilience, leverage partnerships, and support land conservation and biodiversity efforts.
