If support is available for the region where you wish to apply for a grant, the first step is to thoroughly review the investment strategy included in the relevant ecosystem profile. Every grant awarded helps implement one of the strategic directions in the strategy included in the profile.
Applicants should also review our application guidelines below and any specific announcement of grant availability.
The next step for all applicants is to submit a letter of inquiry about the work being proposed.
For proposals requesting $20,000 or less, the letter of inquiry constitutes the full proposal. If a letter of inquiry requesting more than $20,000 is recommended for award, the applicant will be notified and invited to submit a full project proposal.

All letters of inquiry for grants of more than $20,000 should be sent by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
