  • Large grants – greater than US$50,000

Eligible Countries

Eligibility Criteria

  • Non-governmental organizations, community groups, universities and private enterprises may apply for funding. Individuals must work with civil society organizations to develop LoIs rather than apply directly.
  • To qualify for a CEPF grant, the applicant must not be a government agency or institution. Government-owned enterprises or institutions are eligible only if they can establish that they:
  • Have a legal personality independent of any government agency or actor;
  • Have the authority to apply for and receive private funds; and
  • May not assert a claim of sovereign immunity.
  • Applicants based outside of the eligible countries may submit a LOI as long as the project deliverables are focused on the conservation needs of this call.
