The Climate x Health initiative, co-convened by Wellcome Trust, The Rockefeller Foundation, the Global Climate and Health Alliance, and Amref Health Africa, is delighted to offer interested organizations the opportunity to apply for a small grant to strengthen joint advocacy, action, and accountability for climate and health in early 2024.
- Make the case for greater action and accountability on climate and health: This category aims to target decision-makers and persuasively call for ambitious climate and health action, leveraging anything from evidence generation to human stories to champion voices and more.
- Build capacity and partnerships amid growing climate and health community: This category aims to facilitate more impactful and coordinated action on climate and health by investing in community itself – from getting new groups involved to laying groundwork for meaningful partnerships and dialogue, to ensuring groups are equipped to work together to drive change.
- In this first year, the program will award a handful of small grants between USD $5,000 and $10,000 to support proposals in two overarching categories.
- This opportunity is primarily for civil society, non-governmental, and not-for-profit organizations. However, any type of organization may choose to apply, and the submitting organization may choose to list partners from any sector as part of their proposal.
- Organizations from all regions and geographies are eligible to apply, with a majority of funds ultimately designated for organizations in low- and middle-income countries or underfunded groups in high-income countries.
- Proposals must have clear relevance to climate and health as well as a significant advocacy, communications, or capacity-building focus.
- Proposals must have one or more specific and realistic deliverables that can be completed by 31 May 2024 (Note: Final selection of grantees anticipated in January 2024, followed by disbursement of funds. Final reports will be due by end of June 2024)
- Proposals can support new activities or deliverables, or supplement/enhance activities and deliverables that are already underway – as long as the addition of the small grant would add unique and distinct value, and this value is clearly articulated.
- Interested organizations must have at least one representative signed up to participate in the Climate x Health forum in time for the application deadline, via the “get involved” form on the climatexhealth.org website.
- Applicants must have an established organizational bank account to receive funds.
