NFWF’s Board of Directors approved a 10-year business plan for the central Appalachian landscape in 2019. The business plan establishes NFWF’s conservation goals and performance targets for the landscape, as well as identifies key implementation strategies and associated budgets. This mapping portal is designed to be a geographic representation of the business plan.

The mapping portal should help applicants to the Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Program develop grant proposals that are well-aligned with NFWF’s priorities, as well as the priorities of our funding partners, and help applicants leverage NFWF’s past investments. Major funding for the Central Appalachia Habitat Stewardship Program is provided by the Richard King Mellon Foundation, USDA’s Forest Service and Natural Resources Conservation Service and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. If you have suggestions about how the mapping portal can be improved, please send suggestions to CentralApps@nfwf.org.
