IMPACT (Identifying Measures of Performance and Achieving Conservation Targets)
The NMBCA IMPACT program targets a portion of funding on a group of particularly threatened Neotropical migratory birds with the goal of achieving a measurable biological improvement in these species over the next 5-10 years. Twenty-five to 30 percent of NMBCA funding for 2014 will be dedicated in support of projects that propose to address these species as outlined in these instructions. The remaining 70-75 percent of funds will be dedicated in support of the traditional NMBCA program, where conservation projects addressing any Neotropical migratory bird species are eligible.

How to Be a Better Project Officer
Your performance as a project manager can affect your organization’s ability to obtain future NMBCA grants. The NMBCA program evaluates each grantee and documents performance in permanent files. These files are open to auditors during grant audits.  We also report on grant performance to the proposal selection team, which considers our input as when evaluating new grant applications for funding.  So how can you be the best project officer possible?  We’ve got some helpful tips for you.
