Grant opportunity to support women’s participation in peace processes and agreements
The Women’s Peace and Humanitarian Fund (WPHF) has launched a Rapid Response Window (RRW) to address the funding gap on women’s participation in formal peace processes and the implementation of peace agreements. The WPHF RRW provides financing for strategic, short term and urgent services and initiatives led by women peacebuilders and women’s civil society organizations to increase women’s influence in national, subnational and international formal peace processes.
No deadline. The RRW is demand-driven and accepts submissions on a rolling basis.
Direct Support Stream up to $25,000 USD (this is not a grant and no funding will be provided to the beneficiaries)
The WPHF RRW or RRW INGO partners pay for costs directly so that the required service is provided rapidly. Once the WPHF RRW or RRW INGO partners pay for the service, the CSO/women peacebuilders use the service to support their work on women’s meaningful participation in peace processes or peace agreement implementation.
This includes logistical and technical support that would increase the likelihood of a woman CSO representative/woman peacebuilder to actively participate in or influence a peace process or the implementation of a peace agreement — such as the cost of childcare, access for persons with disabilities, interpretation needs, expert advisory support, travels arrangements, etc.
Successful applicants receive services, not a grant. Services will be purchased and arranged directly from the WPHF RRW Secretariat or one of its partners on behalf of selected applicants.
Short-Term Grants Stream (up to $100,000 USD – the CSO will receive funding)
The WPHF RRW works with a range of INGO partners to deliver rapid grants for women’s civil society organizations’ projects that address diverse barriers to women’s influence and participation in Track 1 or Track 2 peace processes, or the implementation of a peace agreement.
Organizations can apply for both Direct Support and Short-Term Grant at the same time. If you are applying for both, you must submit a separate application form using the appropriate templates.
