Grants of up to $50,000 to USA native-led nonprofit organizations, tribal governments, and indigenous community organizations for projects to protect and restore native species in eligible regions. The purpose of the program is to address environmental changes that affect species and habitats in the Bering Sea.

The Bering Sea is one of the most productive marine ecosystems in the world supporting large numbers of marine mammals, sea birds, fish and shellfish. Over 70 Indigenous communities have relied on the Bering Sea for millennia and continue to do so to this day. Due to record-breaking temperatures caused by climate change that have led to reductions in sea ice and snow, Native communities are facing more hazardous and unpredictable conditions when hunting or fishing traditional foods. Other threats such as overfishing, habitat destruction, poaching, bottom-sea trawling, and pollution have also led to a decline in wildlife species. Through this grant opportunity, First Nations will provide grant resources to Bering Sea Native communities to address the depletion of marine resources needed to sustain their communities and people.

First Nations is now accepting applications under the Stewarding Native Lands (SNL) program for Native communities that are working to protect marine resources in the Bering Sea ecoregion.

Selected grantees under this opportunity must use funding to support projects that will protect marine resources in the Bering Sea. Examples of allowable projects under this funding opportunity include, but are not limited to:

  • Conservation and stewardship activities
  • Data collection and research
  • Coalition building
  • Government consultation activities
  • Advocacy and outreach campaigns
  • Policy development
