APC Member Grants

Grants for research and campaign support – (2018 CALL OPENING SOON)

These grants can be used for research and campaign activities that are aligned with any of the strategies identified in APC’s Theory of Change.

These grants will continue to support local campaigns that contribute to members’ advocacy work and also enable members to participate in APC-wide campaigns.

In the 2018 cycle, members can apply for a grant all year round, as long as these activities are implemented within the same calendar year. This change gives members more opportunities and flexibility to apply for support for research and campaign activities. Applications must be submitted at least four weeks before the expected start of implementation. 

These grants are up to USD 5,000 and all activities must start after February 2018 and be completed by 31 December 2018.

To apply for a research and campaign grant, please fill out this application form.

Grants to support the local implementation of APC’s strategic plan (2018 CALL OPENING SOON)

These grants are for projects that contribute to the implementation of APC’s strategic priorities at the national level. At the same time, they are meant to strengthen ongoing work of APC members that is linked to APC’s strategic priorities.

In their proposals, members should demonstrate how their projects contribute to one or more key result areas in APC’s Theory of Change at the local level and specify the strategies identified for each of them. Project activities can include research, advocacy, network and movement building, capacity building and communications. All projects should integrate a gender and rights-based perspective.

Project grants for local implementation of APC’s strategic priorities are up to USD 20,000. Project implementation must be from 1 February to 31 December 2018. Please note that organizations that have been awarded project grants in 2017 cannot apply in 2018. 

NOTE: Please use the Budget template provided.
