The CFLI funds small and preferably visible, results-oriented projects which are proposed and implemented by officially registered local NGOs and organizations working on projects supporting Syrians in Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, or Jordan.
It only provides contributions for project related expenses covered by a contribution agreement.
The CFLI does not cover over-head costs such as those related to the administration of an organization, ongoing or recurring projects, large-scale construction, or general budgetary needs. It 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 empower civil society and local communities around the world.
The CFLI is not to be considered an annual sustainable source of funding. Partners receiving more than two prior grants are discouraged from applying.
- Available Funding: the maximum contribution for 2021/22 is CAD $60,000.
- Project Duration: Projects can run from mid June 2021, until February 18, 2022.
What types of projects will CFLI Fund?
- Projects must fall within one of the 2021-2022 CFLI themes. Regardless of the theme, all projects must address the empowerment of women and girls and promote gender equality.
- Emphasis will be placed on innovative, accountable, and sustainable projects. Initiatives aimed at producing concrete results will be prioritized. Projects with a communications strategy, including social media and robust advocacy component will be prioritized.
- The four themes are:
- Registered local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations.
- Local academic institutions working on local projects.
- All potential partners require an official government registration of their organization.
- Projects are located in Syria, Turkey, Lebanon, or Jordan.
