UNDP/Belize Call for Proposals: Inviting NGOs for GF Small Grants Fund 2018

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 2 February 2018

The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is currently seeking proposals for its GF Small Grants Fund 2018 with an aim to cover a range of areas related to promoting and protecting the human rights of people living with HIV and TB, key populations, including men who have sex with men, sex workers, and transgender.

The small grants are expected to include capacity building activities to enable CBOs and/or relevant government ministries to be sustainable in their response to addressing HIV and TB.

Grant Information and Duration

  • Proposal amounts should not exceed USD20,000 for direct interventions in a single community/ activity or to geographical area for direct interventions in multiple communities/activities or geographical areas within the same country as stated in the ToR.
  • The amount requested in the proposal should be commensurate with the organization’s administrative and financial management capabilities. Project implementation must not exceed 12 months duration.

Expected Outcomes

The capacity building activities for CBOs for which funds may be requested include:

  • Development of organizational policy manuals and guidance documents related to promoting a rights-based approach to HIV and TB responses.
  • Short term consultants – drawn first from national pool wherever possible but open to international should qualified pool not be identified—to strengthen M & E and/or financial systems to more effectively monitor key populations/human rights programming. The support of consultants will require definition of clear ToRs with well described and specific deliverables that contribute to human rights or efforts to decrease stigma and discrimination in Belize
  • Attending academic courses on human rights, key populations, and/or gender to advance knowledge of key and current perspectives and programming. International visits should be limited and should include follow up trainings to expand the impact of the international visit (in line with what has been previously approved by the Global Fund). No more than 10% of the total funds in the small grants program can be used on international visits.
  • Participation by Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in meetings with government/other civil society representatives to discuss and develop policy and processes, including, for example, updating VCT and treatment guidelines, developing strategies to combat stigma and discrimination, etc.
  • Development of communication strategies for CBOs that contribute to efforts to addressing structural barriers in the HIV response.
  • When specifically presented within a larger approved project budget that is specifically linked to reducing stigma and discrimination, limited equipment necessary for the project can be purchased (only where a demonstrated need has been presented)
  • Other capacity building activities where there is proven evidence of the positive contribution of these types of activities to the reduction of stigma and discrimination against key populations.
