The GAP targets non-government applicants, including but not limited to: non-governmental organizations, community-based organizations, academia, local associations and private sector entities. Projects must be aligned with BFSF’s four (4) Strategic Objectives (SO): Protection for Biodiversity, Sustainable Fisheries, Climate Resilience and Blue Business Innovation. These Strategic Objectives are broadly defined and are intended to help support and contribute to Belize achieving the conservation commitments under the Conservation Finance Agreement (CFA), as a part of the Blue Loan Agreement that the Government of Belize and TNC signed unto. Annually, 40% or $3.2 million Belize dollars will be allocated for funding under the GAP. There are three categories of grants that can be applied for: small, medium and large grants through an annual Call for Proposals.
