Belize Nature Conservation Foundation – Call for Proposals (2017)
The Belize Nature Conservation Foundation (BNCF) provides grants to registered management organizations of terrestrial protected areas including, non-governmental organizations and community-based organizations that are involved in conservation and management for sustainable use of Belize’s natural resources and terrestrial protected areas. The BNCF is now accepting project applications for its 2017 grants cycle.
The Belize Nature Conservation Foundation (BNCF) was the product of a Debt for Nature Swap with the United States Government and local NGOs. This agreement required the US Government, with funds from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), to retire US$ 9M in debt from the Government of Belize. The BNCF was officially established in November 2004. Through this agreement, funding is provided to registered management organizations of terrestrial protected areas to carry out projects in the areas of general park management protection, environmental education, equipment, training, and research. PACT serves as the administrator of the Foundation’s grants program.
