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​.

Call for Proposals for Consultant

Call for Proposals for Consultant to Prepare the Project Document for a Full-Sized GEF Project

On April 1, 2014, the GEF Secretariat approved a Project Identification Form (PIF) for a $9,800,000 full-sized project to mainstream biodiversity conservation into government policy and private sector practice in three pilot biodiversity hotspots through civil society by investing in and innovating public-private partnerships and replicating approaches and innovations in other biodiversity hotspots. The project will be executed by CEPF, via CI as the GEF Implementing Agency, with funding from the GEF Trust Fund under the biodiversity focal area. A Project Preparation Grant has been awarded to enable preparation of the full Project Document (ProDoc), based upon the approved PIF.

The consultant will lead the development of the ProDoc for the full-sized GEF project: Effectively mainstreaming biodiversity conservation into government policy and private sector practice: piloting sustainability models to take the Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF) to scale. Drawing on the approved PIF and incorporating input from the CEPF Secretariat and other key stakeholders, the consultant will be responsible for preparing the ProDoc, including developing a detailed result-based project framework and incremental cost analysis.
