Funding Partnerships for Action

In the four years since the Partnership’s announcement in 2013, the Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM), Fort Huachuca, and Middle Chesapeake Sentinel Landscapes have worked to advance their specific military mission, working lands, and resource conservation goals.  Though each of the local partnership’s specific priorities differ dramatically, all three have had success in leveraging different funding sources to address their respective goals.

In total, partners have invested over $85 million to achieve the goals at these three locations, with additional commitments pledged to the Sentinel Landscapes designated in July 2016: Avon Park Air Force Range, Camp Ripley, and Eastern North Carolina.  The tables and figures below summarize funding since the beginning of the Partnership in Fiscal Year (FY) 2013 for all three Landscapes designated between 2013 and 2015.  Funding information for Landscapes designated thereafter will be added in the future as those partnerships continue to refine and work towards their respective goals. 

A significant portion of the total investment in Sentinel Landscapes comes from state and local governments, whose enthusiastic support and commitment to the mission of the Sentinel Landscapes initiative has helped to drive the success of the Partnership.  To date, state and local governments have contributed over $17.7 million of the total funds across the JBLM, Fort Huachuca, and Middle Chesapeake Sentinel Landscapes.
