The Program

QLEs are welcome to submit proposals for water transactions at any time to the Foundation. The criteria approved by the Independent Scientific Review Panel in Section 1 below should be considered in developing the transaction proposal. A proposal form has been included in Section 2 for QLEs to use in submitting a transaction proposal. It would be helpful to NFWF if the QLE included a specific cover letter to the proposal that addresses the information in the proposal form, especially if there are criteria that cannot be met due to site-specific circumstances. For additional clarification, please contact Andrew Purkey.
