Grants for civil society initiatives to end violence against women and girls

The UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women is seeking proposals for civil society-led, demand-driven initiatives to end violence against women and girls.

Application deadline: 18 January 2023
Grant amount: up to USD1 million
Implementation period: three years

 

This year’s funding will focus on ending violence against women and girls experiencing intersecting forms of discrimination and strengthening organizational preparedness and resilience to effectively address violence against women and girls before and once a crisis hits.

In parallel, this year’s Call includes a special focus to end violence against women and girls in the context of protracted crises, to support organizations working in these settings through initiatives that meet the specific needs of women and girls at risk and survivors of violence, especially those at risk of exclusion and marginalization.

Eligibility

Only applications from civil society organizations (CSOs), especially women’s rights organizations (WROs) with specialized knowledge, expertise, and a track record of working on the elimination of violence against women and girls will be accepted. The applications from women’s rights organizations, women-led organizations, constituent-led and grassroot women’s organizations will be prioritised.

Application and submission

The annual Call for Proposals document is available in the six UN official languages (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish).

Applications may be submitted in English, French and Spanish.

All applications need to be submitted in the Grants Management System.
