Applications Open for Canada Fund for Local Initiatives 2017-2018!

Deadline: 25 May 2017

Applications are open for Canada Fund for Local Initiatives (CFLI) to fund small but visible, high impact, results-oriented projects which are proposed and implemented by local NGOs and other grassroots organizations. CFLI is a responsive, flexible program.

This enables Canada to respond to local needs by working at the community level. Equally important, the CFLI serves to strengthen Canada’s relationships with civil society and local communities and to build networks of contacts in countries around the world.

The High Commission of Canada in Pretoria manages the CFLI in the following countries: South Africa, Madagascar, Lesotho, Namibia and Mauritius.

2017-2018 CFLI Priorities

  • Empowering women and girls and promoting gender equality;
  • Championing human rights, inclusive and accountable governance, democracy, peaceful pluralism, and respect for diversity;
  • Supporting inclusive and green economic growth and promoting action on the environment and climate change.

Funding Information

The majority of the funded projects will receive between CAD $10,000 to $25,000.

Term of Projects

All projects must be completed between the date of signature of the Contribution Agreement and 28 February 2018.

Eligibility Criteria

  • local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations
  • local academic institutions working on local projects;
  • international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities;
  • municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects; and
  • Canadian non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations that are working on local development activities.

The majority of CFLI funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations can be eligible for a contribution, provided that they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI. Similarly, municipal, regional or national government institutions may receive CFLI funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects, which deliver measurable results.
