The Small Grants Fund provides financial and technical support to organizations around the world to use GFW’s tools and data to turn forest monitoring information into action.
Working in close partnership with local organizations also helps GFW to understand how we can best adapt our tools to meet the unique needs of this user group.
Winning proposals will clearly demonstrate how they intend to use GFW’s suite of tools and data on GFW to curb deforestation within one of these three key themes.
Utilize This Offer
The scope of the 2021 Small Grants Fund focuses on three key themes:
• forest protection,
• forests and agriculture, and
• forest policy.
All applications must clearly articulate how GFW will play a critical role in the project.
To find out more information about how to use GFW, you can explore the help materials on the Help Center.
We encourage applications that can clearly demonstrate how GFW contributes to existing work.
Only organizations legally designated as non-profit and non-governmental are eligible for the Small Grants.
Funding can only be granted to one organization per application, although you may subgrant to other partners to implement the project as long as you have an active role in both the management and implementation of the project.
International organizations are eligible to apply if the proposed project is at the national or subnational level.
We can only accept applications in English.
Before applying, please carefully review these guidelines along with the Small Grants Fund Frequently Asked Questions.
