Sentinel Landscapes Partnership Announces 2021 Designation Cycle

We are excited to announce that the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership has officially launched a 2021 designation cycle! Apply today to become part of an innovative community working to strengthen military readiness, conserve natural resources, bolster agricultural and forestry economies, and increase climate change resilience. Information on this exciting opportunity can be found on the partnership’s website here.

All parties interested in applying for a designation must submit a pre-proposal through the partnership’s website by 8:00 PM ET on March 29th, 2021. Those that put forward the most promising submissions will be invited to complete a full proposal. Applicants will then have at least 60 business days to write their full proposals. The partnership will announce final designations by no later than December 2021.

Founded in 2013, the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership is a coalition of federal agencies, state and local governments, and non-governmental organizations that works to advance mutually beneficial land-use goals in project areas known as sentinel landscapes. The partnership accomplishes this mission by connecting private landowners with government assistance programs that offset the cost of sustainable management practices, conservation projects, or climate change adaptation measures. Sentinel landscape designations lead to a myriad of benefits for local partnerships, including resources to hire a partnership coordinator and priority consideration for certain federal funding opportunities. 

Representatives from the partnership will be available to answer questions about the designation cycle during a live help session webinar scheduled for February 3rd, 2021, from 1:00 PM ET – 2:30 PM ET. For more information about the Sentinel Landscapes Partnership, please visit the initiative’s website or contact Jaime Simon at or Megan Dougherty at
