Would you like help strengthening your proposal to one of these (or other) grant programs? Blueprint user support staff can assist by communicating how your project contributes to regional goals and strategies, making maps, analyzing the alignment with the Blueprint and underlying datasets, assessing risk of urbanization or sea-level rise, writing letters of support, and more. Over the past two years of the ATBC, user support staff helped support 27 proposals, 9 of which were successfully funded to the tune of almost $25 million.

We’d love to help you get your important conservation work accomplished! You can find contact information for members of the user support team on the SECAS staff page.
