The Endangered Landscapes Programme has two types of grant available.

Project Implementation Grants

Project Implementation Grants are in the range of $2- $5M and have a maximum duration of five years. Application is by invitation only. 

These grants will fund teams implementing projects where the aim is to create areas that are rich in biodiversity and resilient to environmental change. Grants will mainly support projects where teams are already established, plans developed and agreements have been reached among stakeholders, but where an injection of funding is needed to allow the project to proceed.

This call for proposals has now closed – you can read about the recipients of these grants here.

Project Innovation Grants

Project Innovation Grants will be up to $100,000 in value and last up to two years. There is currently an open call for these applications – please read below for further information.

The Endangered Landscapes Programme recognises that the consultation, participatory planning, research, analysis and team-building required for landscape-scale projects takes time and money, and may present a barrier to the development of new and innovative projects. With no commitment to fund the initiative after the planning phase, a small number of grants will support the work needed to build alliances and prepare plans (and funding proposals) for exciting and innovative new landscape initiatives.

The total funding available is $600,000. The maximum that any individual project can apply for is $100,000, and applications for smaller amounts are encouraged. Grants will last up to two years.

There is currently an open call for proposals to apply for these grants – the first deadline is 4th March 2019.
