I'm working up a proposal for a nf project and one of the publishers on my list requires that a proposal include a permissions budget.
Many of the photos will be available through private people and government sources. Does anyone have any idea how large a photo budget I should request? What is a reasonable photo budget?

Budgets vary so much you would have to ask the publisher. In my experience I have gotten many permissions for free but it took time and money to get them. There are many government photos that are free to the public but you do need to study it. This is a big subject and the best thing is to start now gathering them and soon you will get a feel for what is available on the subject so that you can make a reasonable guess.
