to demand good
19 August 2011The Asia Foundation is now accepting concept notes under the non-state actor component (NSAC) of the Demand for Good Governance (DFGG) project funded by the World Bank. There are two categories of grants available: (i) thematic grants that will support innovative social accountability and governance projects in Cambodia; and (ii) partnership grants that will extend and support the work of the DFGG state institutions listed below.
The thematic grants window will: (i) support enhanced engagement with the commune/sangkat and district/khan councils in sub-national planning and project implementation and (ii) strengthen local education and health service delivery through targeted social accountability tools.
The partnership grants window of NSAC will provide funds to non-state actors to complement the activities of the following state institutions:
The grant ceiling for a medium-sized grant is $70,000 and the ceiling for a large-sized grant is $250,000.
The maximum implementation period for this round is 12 months. However, applicants are encouraged to suggest time frames that match the scope of work.
The NSAC grants are open to all registered non-state actors (NSAs) working in Cambodia, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs), networks, associations, community organizations, think tanks, universities, media and others. Applications from coalitions or a group of NSAs are encouraged. Coalitions must also be registered to apply. If a coalition is not registered, they must apply in partnership with a registered member organization. An organization must be registered by the RGC to receive grant funds.
The application process has four steps, including:
