Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribal governments, and educational institutions in multiple states to conserve and protect monarch butterflies and other insect pollinators and their habitats. Applicants must submit a preliminary application prior to submitting a full proposal.
Grant funding will be awarded in the following states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. West of the Rocky Mountains, priority will be given to projects on or adjacent to the following: working lands, monarch butterfly overwintering sites, and USFS lands.
The most competitive projects will demonstrate clear benefits to both the monarch butterfly and additional at-risk native insect pollinators species. Grants will be awarded in two categories:
Monarch habitat plantings across the breeding range must include at least one species of regionally appropriate milkweed. Monarch habitat must also include nectar plants with bloom times that coincide with the presence of monarchs in the project site area. To meet the nutritional needs of breeding and migrating adult monarchs, monarch plantings must provide at least three blooming nectar species (in addition to milkweed) during each of the following periods: spring, summer, and fall. Projects proposed to benefit other at-risk native insect pollinators should specify habitat needs for those species and how the proposed work will support their breeding, nectaring, nesting, or other habitat needs. Funding will primarily support the following two strategies for either the eastern or western monarch butterfly population plus additional at-risk native insect pollinators:
