The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), in partnership with NOAA, is now soliciting Full Proposals for the 2023 Electronic Monitoring and Reporting Grant Program. The Request for Proposals is available here.
The Electronic Monitoring and Reporting Grant Program will give priority to projects that:

- Modernize data management systems in order to reduce costs and improve consistency, interoperability, quality, and/or usability of information collected using e-technology.
NFWF estimates awarding no more than $3.8 million in grants, contingent on the availability of funding. Awards are anticipated to range between $200,000 to $500,000 on average.
