Funding for Eastern Caribbean projects

What kind of projects are we looking for this year?

The Eastern Caribbean Network Regional Fund (ECNRF) is primarily used to help British High Commissions in the Eastern Caribbean achieve the strategic priorities of the UK’s foreign ministry, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

Projects must have activity in or involve individuals / institutions from at least two of the following country sets (each covered by a British High Commission):
