Land trusts across the U.S. are providing benefits to birds. The Cornell Lab of Ornithology created the Land Trust Bird Conservation Initiative to work with land trusts determine the best ways to maximize the mutual benefits that birds and land trusts can provide to each other.

The Initiative also provides an annual grant program to help increase the footprint and impact of bird conservation on private lands by providing funding and technical support to land trusts and their partners through bird monitoring implementation, management and restoration of habitat on private lands, and increased capacity for community outreach and partnerships.

The 2023 land trust grant program will fund up to fourteen grants via two tracks:

Capacity and Partnership Projects:
6 grants of $5,000 each

Management and Restoration Projects:
8 grants of $25,000 each
