Canada Fund for Local Initiatives – Community Projects
The Canada Fund for Local Initiatives invites proposals that meet the needs of local communities in any one of the following countries: Micronesia, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Nauru, Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands and Vanuatu. The priorities include one on environment and climate action focusing on adaptation and mitigation, as well as on water management. The average contribution is expected to be in the range of C$5 thousand to C$30 thousand per project. Larger projects may be considered on an exceptional basis. Eligibility extends to local community organizations, non-profit organizations, and academic institutions working on local projects.
Organizations eligible to apply for CFLI funding
Eligible recipients include:
- local non-governmental, community and not-for-profit organizations;
- local academic institutions working on local projects;
- international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional institutions, organizations and agencies working on local development activities;
- municipal, regional or national government institutions or agencies of the recipient country working on local projects, and
- Canadian non-governmental and not-for-profit organizations that are working on local development activities.
The majority of CFLI funding is to be directed toward local civil society organizations (including non-governmental organizations) and other institutions working at the local level. Other entities, such as international, intergovernmental, multilateral and regional organizations may be eligible for funding, provided they are working with local partners and on local projects that are consistent with the objectives of the CFLI. Similarly, municipal, regional and national government institutions may receive funding, provided that their projects are essentially local in nature. The CFLI is always looking to fund innovative projects that deliver measurable results.
The Deadline for submission is 22 April 2019.
