Offer: Robert Carr Fund for Civil Society Networks: Call for Proposals - HIV related issues

Deadline: 22 July 2013

The Robert Carr Fund for Civil Society Networks (RCNF) has announced its second Request for Proposals for global and regional civil society networks addressing HIV related issues.

The Fund provides grants to both global and regional networks, but with a positive funding bias towards proposals submitted by consortia of networks, followed by proposals submitted by global networks, followed by proposals submitted by regional networks. Regional networks are encouraged to form or join a consortium for a joint application.

The Fund was originally launched in Washington DC in July 2012. It is named in the honour of Dr Robert Carr, to recognize his memory and work. Inspired by his commitment to vulnerable communities and protecting their human rights, the RCNF is aimed at: a) supporting global and regional civil society networks addressing critical factors for scaling up access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support; and b) protecting the rights of inadequately served populations across the world.

Regional networks can apply for a minimum of $ 100,000 and a maximum of $ 350,000 per network per year, for two years maximum. Global networks can apply for a minimum of $ 100,000 and a maximum of $ 500,000 per network per year, for two years maximum.

A consortium can apply for a minimum of $ 200,000 per consortium per year, for two years maximum. As the size of different consortia may vary substantially, no fixed ceiling is set for an application by a consortium.

Actual funding amounts will be dependent on the funds becoming available.
