SMEEF operates grant rounds as and when we have sufficient funds in the pot. Grant rounds have previously focused on project development (getting started, baseline survey and other activation activities) and capital needs (purchase of equipment and improvement to facilities).
As a broad guide we consider ‘marine and coastal’ to include species and habitats where salt water plays a crucial role in the natural life cycle. The species or habitat at the heart of your application must fit this definition.
For-profit projects and organisations are welcome to apply to SMEEF but they should form part of a consortium application with a non-profit or other similar legal structure or community group.
Our grant fund is currently closed for applications. In the meantime you can read about the types of projects funded and case studies in our Impact Report and view previous (and ongoing) projects on our map or on our Projects page.
