A proposed project must encompass the development, testing, evaluation, and monitoring of: 1) conservation adoption approaches or incentive systems; 2) promising conservation technologies, practices, systems, procedures, or approaches; or 3) environmental soundness with goals of environmental protection and natural resources enhancement. Program has offered climate-related funding opportunities in the past. Eligibility: State, local, or Tribal governments; non-governmental organizations; or individuals.
