How to Apply

The Belize Fund for a Sustainable Future (Belize Fund) provides funding to non-government entities through its Grants Award Program (GAP). Applications for grants are received through an annual Call for Proposal, a two-step process in which a concept paper is to be accepted before submitting a full proposal.

Concepts should focus on coastal and marine areas of Belize but can also target terrestrial areas, provided that there is a direct nexus between the funding and coastal and marine outcomes in alignment with the Belize Fund’s thematic areas.

Eligible entities can apply grants provided that they:

  1. are a registered entity;
