Central Africa Regional Program

Funding Agency:
US Fish and Wildlife Service

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s mission is to work with others to conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife and plants and their habitats for the continuing benefit of the American people. The International Affairs Program delivers on this mission through its financial assistance programs by supporting strategic projects that deliver measurable conservation results for priority species and their habitats around the world.

In collaboration with the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Central Africa Regional Program for the Environment (CARPE), USFWS is providing this funding opportunity to conserve Central Africa’s most important wildlife strongholds, to support the region’s parks and other protected areas, and to address regional threats to wildlife. 

Funding will only be considered for projects that impact wildlife populations in the 10 Commission of Central African Forests (COMIFAC) countries: Burundi, Cameroon, Chad, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Equatorial Guinea, Gabon, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, and São Tomé and Príncipe. 

Deadline for Pre-proposals: March 18, 2019
