Grants

Researchers setting up camera in Batang Gadis National Park, Sumatra

Our grant recipients range from small farming cooperatives and community associations to international organizations. Every grant helps implement an investment strategy found in the ecosystem profile for each region where we invest.

With our support, hundreds of civil society groups have achieved significant outcomes. For example, their efforts have influenced major governmental policies in dozens of countries and helped protect more than 10 million hectares of globally important land since the program’s creation in 2000.

Calls for proposals and other news about grant availability are announced on this site. Proposals are welcome if they meet our eligibility criteria.

For questions about applying to CEPF, please read the "Calls for Proposals" section below, or send an email to cepfgrants@conservation.org​.
