The GPTF has funded projects ranging from the provision of water for wildlife to constructing structures, such as bridges to facilitate the movement of people in communities that are normally cut out during floods. There are several things you must do to turn your idea into a proposal and each step of this process provide the tools and information you need to do this  please read them carefully as you progress. Initial enquiries can be submitted at any time, however, there are four deadlines for full applications every year which can be found in the 'Closing Dates' section. The application process is competitive since the GPTF is not in a position to fund each and every application received; each application is judged on its merits so it is in your best interest to show how your project meets the GPTF criteria. Please feel free to contact the Fund Management Office (FMO) in advance if you want to discuss anything about your idea.
