Sonoran Joint Venture Migratory Bird Program

The Sonoran Joint Venture (SJV) Awards Program supports the investigation and conservation of birds and their habitats within SJV boundaries by providing funds through a competitive program. Proposals for projects that support the SJV mission and objectives and fall into the broad categories of habitat, monitoring, or planning, are eligible for funding. Components of your project may also include outreach, education, community involvement, research, ecotourism, or professional training, but the overall outcome must support habitat, monitoring, or planning.
