CRF’s Capacity Building grants focus on the need to build our collective capacity to facilitate the use of climate services tools and resources by decision-makers in communities, for resource managers, and other practitioners. CRF aims to make capacity-building grants available on a competitive basis to boundary organizations and regional collaboratives on an annual basis. This grantmaking category targets regions or issues that are of shared interest to members of the CRF’s Partners Alliance. As such the topical and geographic focus of grants made in this category will likely vary from year to year. CRF’s capacity building efforts currently have two areas of focus.
