  • Eligible recipients include:
    • 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 working on local development activities.
  • The majority of CFLI funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including non-governmental organizations) and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations, may be eligible for funding, provided they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI. Similarly, municipal, regional and national government institutions may receive funding, provided their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects that deliver measurable results.
