Applications will be accepted from eligible local, national, regional or international non-governmental organizations (NGOs), registered national conservation trust funds (NCTFs), community-based organizations (CBOs), government agencies, regional organizations, private sector companies, universities and other academic institutions, and consortia of organizations.
Organizations from outside the Caribbean applying for funding should have EbA experience/expertise, as well as one or more local partners. It is expected that international organizations applying for grants will incorporate local knowledge transfer and capacity building activities in their projects.

For projects that include activities in Cuba, project proponents must be United Nations agencies or US based organizations. United Nations agencies and private sector companies are expected to commit at least matching finance (50% CBF; 50% cofinance) in support of the grant request.
