The GPSA has received 516 proposals from 42 participating countries during its 3rd Call for Proposals, which was open from May 13 until August 12, 2015. The list of submitted proposals is available here.
This is a significant increase in comparison to the submissions we received during our first (2013, 216 proposals) and second (2014, 428 proposals) calls.This record number reinforces World Bank President Jim Yong Kim’s challenge of scaling up the GPSA when he launched the 3rd Call for Proposals at the Global Partners Forum.
Grant amounts indicatively range from US$400,000 to US$800,000 and are available for social accountability projects and initiatives in eligible countries. Over the next few months, all proposals will undergo a rigorous review process and proposals will be shortlisted by the end of this year, in preparation for presentation to the GPSA Steering Committee.
