The UN Trust Fund to End Violence Against Women is now accepting applications for its 24th grant cycle (2020) from civil society organizations for 3-year grants to address and respond to the growing reports of the rise of violence against women and girls (VAWG) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Civil society organizations working at the front lines of the COVID-19 response and recovery efforts are invited to submit grant proposals for a minimum of US$50,000 up to a maximum of US$1 million for a period of three years.
The deadline for submission of applications is 4 November 2020, 23:59 EST.
All applications must be submitted online. Click here to apply.
Applications from women’s rights, women-led, and small women’s organizations are strongly encouraged, in recognition of them being the driving force of the ending violence against women and girls agenda, as well as being at the forefront of reaching at-risk women and girls and survivors at the grassroots level, delivering in this way on the “leave no one behind” principle of the SDGs.
The funding will focus on responses to and prevention of violence against women taking into account the intersectional marginalization of women in context of the COVID-19 pandemic, particularly acknowledging the increased risk of violence for some groups including indigenous women, women with disabilities, older women, domestic workers and women without access to technology.
