Canada Fund for Local Initiatives — Grants for Civil Society in Belarus

The Canadian Embassy in Poland invites proposals for the Canada Fund for Local Initiatives, with a focus on Belarus. The program is open to NGOs and and other types of community groups for projects that include addressing climate change and enhancing environmental sustainability. Grants are up to CAD $25 thousand, with a preference for requests that are smaller. In light of legislation prohibiting citizens in Belarus from receiving funding directly from foreign governments and the security risks to members of NGOs and civil society, most projects are likely to be managed by NGOs based outside the country. The deadline for proposals (English, French) is 19 July 2016. Link
