Pulling Together Initiative

The Pulling Together Initiative program is inviting applications for competitive grant funding to promote the conservation of natural habitats by preventing, managing or eradicating invasive and noxious plant species. In 2018, the program will award grants to develop or advance Cooperative Weed Management Areas (CWMAs), Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs), and Partnerships for Regional Invasive Species Management (PRISMS) within the sagebrush ecosystem.

Approximately $420,000 is expected to be available for grant awards in 2018. The program is a partnership between the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the U.S.D.A Forest Service.


Priority will be given to projects occurring in sagebrush habitat in: Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming.
