The Habitats Trust Grants recipients are selected through a structured process that measures in detail and depth, the impact of the project, the applicant’s capacity to deliver, and sustainability of the proposed work.

The screening model applied is simple yet robust, scientifically formulated, with multiple levels of assessments. Parameters include the relevance, expected conservation impact, stakeholder engagement, scalability, replicability and sustainability of the proposed project. The past work and conservation ethics of the applicant are thoroughly investigated.

The process consists of four distinct levels of assessments, as listed below:
