Community Support Fund

The Community Support Fund is a dedicated small grant fund, operated by Fauna & Flora International. It is intended to enable groups to meet specific, locally-determined goals and outcomes, with the overall aim of progressing local biodiversity conservation or group development.

Grants can be sought by CCN members and other community-based organisations that we engage with, for discrete projects, to build the capacity or governance of a group, or to support learning and development. To find out more, or to make an application, please read the criteria and application form below.
