CPIC co-founder The Nature Conservancy today officially launched the second round of the Conservation Investment Accelerator grant award program, conducted through its NatureVest conservation impact investing unit.

The Accelerator supports innovative conservation investment ideas with the potential to drive replicable conservation impact and generate sustained financial returns. The grant awards offer $50k to $250k to support conservation projects ranging from early-stage proof-of-concept to more developed deal work in order to help build the market for conservation investments and drive impact at scale.

Applications will be accepted through April 13, and full details can be found at www.naturevesttnc.org/accelerator.
