The program supports activities that foster the protection and sustainable management of forests outside the focal landscapes.
Proposed projects should contribute to the protection and sustainable management of Philippine forests and its biodiversity. For more details on the eligible activities for funding, please download the Forest Foundation Philippines Program Plan, 2017-2021.
Proposed projects should fall under the following:
Scholarship Grant. Scholarship Grants are for individuals seeking higher education on the science of plant conservation. For more information, please visit this link.
Applied Research Grant. Applied Research Grants are for scientific organizations and individuals. The expected output of an applied research grant is a peer-reviewed published paper.
Piloting Forest Management Strategies in Small Islands Ecosystems. This grant is for the piloting of forest management strategies in small islands ecosystems, as well as the research on the establishment and management of critical habitats. This includes Indigenous and Community Conserved Areas (ICCAs) and Locally Conserved Areas (LCAs). The expected output for this grant is a documentation of the appropriate forest management strategies for the project sites.
Scaling-up Mangrove Conservation Grant. This grant supports the multi-year mangrove rehabilitation and protection outside of the four landscapes. It prioritizes eligible recipients that have exhibited success in mangrove conservation projects funded under the first tropical forest conservation fund. Scaling-up includes assessments, replication of best practices and expansion of area coverage to enhance mangrove management.
Partnership Grant. For partnerships (co-funding/leveraging), activities to be funded by the Foundation shall fall within the scope of its mandate, while activities are not covered shall be shouldered by the partner(s).
Nursery Grants. The grant supports the conservation of dipterocarps and other native plants, mangroves, and other unique flora. As a general rule, the Foundation promotes the use of native tree species for both restoration and plantation purposes, and shall make an investment in native/indigenous tree species nurseries. In addition, projects shall be located in key biodiversity areas (KBAs), old-growth forests, unique representative forest areas, threatened watersheds, and priority conservation sites identified by government and/or conservation groups.
Note: Nursery grants can only be supported by small grants (up to Php 500,000).
Miscellaneous Grants. For this grant, possible activities that may be supported include short studies, basic research and documentation, resource mapping and/or valuation, non-timber forest products development, alliance-building and networking, support for policy development and/or resource planning and capacity enhancement. This grant shall also support advocacy activities, including the development and implementation of IEC campaigns on forest conservation and protection.
Entities involved in development, education, research, communications, livelihood and forestry are encouraged to apply. This includes:
Other entities, like State Universities and Colleges (SUCs), higher educational institutions, corporate foundations or specific industry chambers, are invited to engage in partnerships rather than apply for grants.
For 2017-2021, the Foundation has allocated approximately Php 480M to provide grants for the protection of our forests. Proponents may apply for small, medium or large grants.

|Goal||Must deliver expected outputs immediately||Must deliver multiple project outputs that can contribute to specific outcomes||Must deliver multiple project outputs that can contribute to all outcomes|
Note: Small and medium forest landscape grant projects may be linked with large forest landscape grants projects to establish a more participatory and coordinated strategy to forest protection.
