    Northern Virginia Conservation Trust (NVCT) has worked for over 25 years conserving the land, water, and scenic character of Northern Virginia. We have protected more than 8,000 acres of urban and rural places in our service area of more than three million residents. Today, Northern Virginia's lands are threatened by extreme development pressures and climate change, making conservation work crucial to sustaining livable and healthy communities. Land conservation provides natural places for children to play, scenic views, clean water sources, and green spaces to help improve mental health and well-being.

    NVCT is now working on its first-ever Strategic Conservation Plan (SCP), a GIS-based framework that will drive prioritization for years to come of focal conservation landscapes across our 2.5 million-acre, 13-jurisdiction service area. We have piloted our analysis for a key watershed and are seeking advanced technical support capabilities on building that framework out to encompass our entire service area.

    NVCT encourages disadvantaged, minority, and women business enterprises to apply. All submissions must be received by November 12, 2021.
