ASAP Species Rapid Action Fund - now accepting proposals

During a conservation project, conservation emergencies or a need for unforeseen activities may arise. In such cases, time is of the essence. Fast action can make all the difference to a species' chance of survival.

That is why ASAP is offering grants of up to SGD 13,500 to ASAP Partners for urgent and emergency conservation of ASAP species. The fund will provide rapid disbursement of small amounts of funds to address urgent requests from the field for conservation actions. Grants can be used in the following ways:

  • To address unforeseen conservation emergencies where urgent action is needed; and
  • For activities that are critical for the seamless continuation of current conservation actions.

For details on the types of activities that will be covered, please refer to the Application Guidelines.

The proposal must address immediate and urgent conservation actions for ASAP species requiring rapid action. For full list of ASAP species, please visit the ASAP website

Priority will be given to projects occurring within Southeast Asia, but urgent conservation actions for ASAP species outside this region will be considered with strong justification.

We invite ASAP Partners to submit proposals to the ASAP Species Rapid Action Fund. Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis throughout the year and applications can be submitted at any time.
