The Open Philanthropy Project recommended a grant of $1,904,942 over three years to the Nuclear Threat Initiative (NTI) to support projects to reduce Global Catastrophic Biological Risks (GCBRs). NTI intends to use these funds to support projects including, among others, strengthening the Biological Weapons Convention and reducing state biological threats and additional GCBRs through international dialogues.

This follows our October 2017 and July 2018 grants and falls within our focus area of biosecurity and pandemic preparedness.
