Offer: Call for Proposals: UN Voluntary Trust Fund for Victims of Human Trafficking: Small Grants Fund

The Small Grants Facility (SGF) aims to provide tangible support, through established channels, to victims of trafficking in persons. The design of the Small Grants Facility drew from lessons learned from a pilot project hosted under the auspices of UN.GIFT. The 2011 Small Grants Facility will accept project proposals form eligible not-for-profit, non-governmental-organizations (NGOs). Deadline for proposals: April 30, 2011.

"NGOs can submit applications on behalf of a coalition (more than 4 organizations), a consortium (minimum of 2 other organizations and a maximum of 4), but the NGO will be the primary focal point and will be financially responsible for the delivery of the grant.

Applicants may request grants of up to USD 25,000 per year, for project proposals ranging between 6 and 36 months. All applications must be submitted in English. The Small Grants Facility 2011 will be launched on 8 March 2011 and will close on 30 April 2011 at 24:00 CET.

Thematic Priorities

In 2011, two thematic priorities have been established:

- Cross-border and inter-regional activities providing direct humanitarian, legal and/or financial assistance to victims.

- Effective remedies for victims of human trafficking, including, but not limited to, legal support, access to justice and compensation.

All proposals must focus on either one or both of the above-listed thematic priorities. If an application fails to respond to at least one of the two thematic priorities, it will be ineligible to receive funding.
