Offer: The Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) call for large grant proposals.

The Humanitarian Innovation Fund (HIF) has announced its third call for large grant proposals. The Fund’s large grant facility, which provides grants from £75,000 - £150,000 for the development, implementation and testing of an innovation, will be open until the 22nd April 2012.

The Fund was established a year ago by ELRHA (Enhancing Learning and Research for Humanitarian Assistance) and ALNAP (The Active Learning Network for Accountability and Performance in Humanitarian Action) to support organisations and individuals to identify, nurture and share innovative and scalable solutions to the challenges facing effective humanitarian assistance.

The HIF intends to fund 4 - 5 large grant projects in this latest call. The Fund also hosts a small grant facility, which is permanently open for proposals of up to £20,000 for the recognition, invention and dissemination of an innovation.

The launch of the third call comes the same week as the announcement by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) of their decision to provide the HIF with $700,000 (£445,000), in order to support more innovations with the potential to revolutionise humanitarian performance.

Full details of the Humanitarian Innovation Fund can be found on our website: The HIF team will be holding a large grant facility webinar on the website at 14:00 on Wednesday 28th March 2012.
