The Global Partnership for Social Accountability (GPSA) Second Call for Proposals is now closed. The Call for Proposals received 428 submissions from civil society organizations (CSO's) and CSO-networks based and operating in one of the 33 countries that ‘opted-in’ to the GPSA. Grant amounts ranged from US$500,000 to US$1,000,000, however requests for funding below this range were also considered.
Grants are intended to provide strategic and sustained support to CSO projects with the following objectives:
- 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.
- 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.
