Deadline to submit proposals: December 16, 2013


Wells Fargo and the National Fish & Wildlife Foundation seek to promote sustainable communities through Environmental Solutions for Communities by supporting highly-visible projects that link economic development and community well-being to the stewardship and health of the environment. Collectively, investments under this initiative will promote a sustainable future for communities by:

  • Supporting sustainable agricultural practices and private lands stewardship;
  • Conserving critical land and water resources and improving local water quality;
  • Restoring and managing natural habitat, species and ecosystems that are important to community livelihoods;
  • Facilitating investments in green infrastructure, renewable energy and energy efficiency; and
  • Encouraging broad-based citizen and targeted youth participation in project implementation.


Grant awards will typically range from $25,000 to $100,000 with an average grant amount of $40,000.  In some circumstances, proposals submitted under this program may be eligible for additional funding through other NFWF programs.
