Acres for America | National Fish and Wildlife Foundation



Deadline: May 3, 2023

Acres for America, a partnership between Wal-Mart Stores and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, provides funding for projects that conserve important habitat for fish, wildlife, and plants through acquisition of interest in real property. The goal of the Acres for America program is to offset the footprint of Wal-Mart’s domestic facilities on at least an acre-by-acre basis through these acquisitions.

All grant awards require a minimum 1:1 match of cash or contributed goods and services. Federal funds may be considered as match. Due to the competitive nature of the Acres for America program, matching funds are typically at a 5:1 ratio or greater.
