Opted-in Countries

The GPSA makes grants available to CSOs only in countries where governments have consented to ‘opt-in’ to the program. An annual Call for Proposals is issued only in the countries that have opted-in by the time of the launch of the Call.
 
To date, 52 countries have opted-in.

How to Opt-in

To opt-in, a government must send an opt-in letter to the Country Director of the respective World Bank Country Office. The letter must be signed by a representative of the World Bank’s counterpart in government. In the letter, the government confirms that civil society organizations in the country are eligible to receive support from the GPSA. The government also designates a point of contact for matters relating to the GPSA, who will also provide the GPSA with the government’s comments about proposals that are pre-selected to receive grant support from the GPSA.
