Offer: DFID's GLOBAL POVERTY ACTION FUND
The Global Poverty Action Fund (GPAF) is a new fund which was launched on 27 October 2010. The GPAF will be a demand-led fund supporting projects focused on service delivery in support of poverty reduction and the most off-track Millennium Development Goals in poor countries. Projects will be selected on the basis of demonstrable impact on poverty, clarity of outputs and outcomes, and value for money.

Eligibility ‘Small’ UK-based not for profit organisations, with an average income of less than £500,000 p.a. for the past 3 years. ‘Medium’ sized UK-based not for profit organisations (but no fixed upper or lower limit). Organisations receiving PPAs excluded.

The first funding round has opened, and the deadline for receipt of applications (proposals for the Innovation Window, Concept Notes for the Impact Window) is 23:59 on 14 December 2010.
