Small Scale Support Program and Accountability Fund 2019: Inviting Applicants from India

Deadline: 31 January 2019

The Embassy of the Netherlands in India is seeking applications for its Small Scale Support Program and Accountability Fund 2019.

The Dutch government has set up a Small Scale Support Program (SSSP) to support projects in countries with which the Netherlands does not have a development cooperation relationship, such as India.

Through the embassies, contributions are made to strengthen the capacity of local NGOs and to implement their projects. Based on the policy letter “Justice and Respect for all” of the Dutch government, the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands primarily seeks to partner with local organizations working in one of the following four focus areas:

  • Equal rights for women, focused on political participation and prevention of violence against women
  • Freedom of Religion and Belief
  • Equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex people (LGBTI)
  • Business and human rights

Given India’s vast geography and in the light of the limited financial capacity, projects in the following states are encouraged to apply: Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, Haryana, Karnataka, Maharashtra and Delhi. Nevertheless, organizations operating in the other states of India can also apply.

Criteria

The Embassy receives a large number of project applications whereas the budget available is sufficient to support only a limited number of projects. To ensure the application process is conducted in a transparent manner, a few guidelines have been laid out. Organizations applying for funding should first and foremost comply with the following criteria, namely:

  • The project must aim to improve/ contribute to at least one of the above mentioned focus areas.
  • The applicant must fulfill all legal obligations under Indian law (including but not limited to the regulations under the Foreign Contribution Regulation Act (FCRA).
  • The applicant should preferably be a local organization, although Dutch and international organizations are, in principle, also eligible for funding.
  • Applications can only be submitted in English, and in the format (application form) provided below.

Non-eligibility

Projects that are not eligible for funding under the SSSP are the following:

  • Humanitarian aid;
  • Activities that are primarily motivated by a commercial interest;
  • Projects with a predominantly academic focus, i.e. feasibility studies, research, etc.
  • Projects that exclusively or largely include the delivery of goods or materials;
  • Infrastructural or construction projects;
  • Bursaries;
  • Activities replicating the previous projects.

How to Apply
