Natural Climate Solutions Accelerator Grant

The Nature Conservancy is announcing a request for proposals for two additional rounds of grant funding for projects with potential to substantially increase the use of natural climate solutions through the U.S. Natural Climate Solutions Accelerator program. This grant-funding program is focused on helping kick-start innovative and scalable approaches to capturing greenhouse gas emissions by using natural and working lands in the United States.

While significant investments are now being made in renewable energy and other technologies to decarbonize the energy sector, the Accelerator program seeks to correspondingly increase investment in the oldest, and one of the most cost-effective carbon capture technologies there is—nature. Over time, the Accelerator strives to support and develop a portfolio of proven approaches and mechanisms to deploying natural solutions that landowners, state and federal governments, corporations, and other climate leaders can efficiently implement on a broad scale.
