UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women launches its 20th global Call for Proposals

Date: Friday, March 25, 2016

The United Nations Trust Fund in Support of Actions to Eliminate Violence against Women is accepting applications for its 20th grant cycle (2016) from civil society organizations and government authorities. Special attention will be paid to applications from women’s rights, women-led, and small organizations (including youth organizations) in recognition of the contribution these make to reaching women and girls at the grassroots level.

This year, the UN Trust Fund is looking to support organizations that qualify for funding under: (a) the three programmatic areas of the UN Trust Fund’s 2015-2020 Strategy; (b) a “special window” addressing violence against women and girls in the context of the current refugee crisis; and (c) those specifically invited to submit proposals.

Applicants are invited to submit grant proposals for a minimum of US$50,000 up to a maximum of US$1 million for a period of two to three years. The application deadline is 4 May 2016.

The complete Call for Proposals detailing criteria, eligibility requirements and application guidelines is available at: http://grants.unwomen.org.
