2012 Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act Grants deadline Nov. 1

The Neotropical Migratory Bird Conservation Act establishes a competitive, matching grants program that supports public-private partnerships carrying out projects in the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean that promote the long-term conservation of Neotropical migratory birds and their habitats. The goals of the Act include perpetuating healthy populations of these birds, providing financial resources for bird conservation initiatives, and fostering international cooperation for such initiatives.

The President's current budget request for the program in FY 2012 is $5 million, but the final Congressional appropriation has not been determined yet (although it has been proposed to be eliminated).

Deadline for applications is November 1, 2011.  If you are interested in applying, see links to resources below.
