The Global Partnership for Social Accountability is pleased to announce its 3rd Call for Proposals (CFP). The Call for Proposals is open to civil society organizations (CSOs) and CSO networks based and operating in any of the eligible countries of those that have 'opted-in' to the GPSA. 

Grant amounts will range from US$400,000 to US$800,000, however requests for funding below this range will also be considered.

Grants are intended to provide strategic and sustained support to CSO projects with the following objectives:

  1. Addressing critical governance and development problems through social accountability processes that involve citizen feedback and participatory methodologies geared to helping governments and public sector institutions solve these problems. Special emphasis is put on problems that directly affect extreme poor and marginalized populations.
  2. Strengthening civil society's capacities for social accountability by investing in CSOs' institutional strengthening and through mentoring of small, nascent CSOs by well-established, larger CSOs with a track record on social accountability.
