Seeking projects with exceptional ecological potential

We are looking for projects with exceptional ecological potential. Our programme is specifically interested in barrier identification and pre-demolition projects (A1, A2, B) and demolition projects (A3, A4) that will enable at least 10 km of river to flow freely per removal.

Public sector entities are welcome to apply

In this application cycle, we are inviting public sector entities to apply for an A3 Dam Removal grant or a B Enabling others to remove dams grant. We encourage you to contact us beforehand if you represent a public entity with a potential project idea. Please review our Information Guide for Applicants (A and B) for specific eligibility requirements.

Join us for a Q&A Session – limited spots are available

Do you have questions about our grants or the application process? We invite you to an hour-long question and answer session on 8 August from 16:00 to 17:00 CET.
