The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women’s (UN Trust Fund) annual Call for Proposals, which is available in six languages, accepts multi-year grant applications for up to USD 1 million in English, French and Spanish. With its 24th funding cycle in 2020, the UN Trust Fund is seeking applications from civil society organizations (CSOs) working on the front lines of the COVID-19 response and recovery to address and respond to the growing reports of the rise of violence against women and girls (VAWG) in the context of the current pandemic.
In this Call for Proposals, the UN Trust Fund will prioritize applications from women’s rights, women-led, and small women’s organizations, 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.
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.
The UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women is now accepting applications for its 24th grant cycle (2020). The deadline for the submission of concept notes is 4 November 2020 23:59 EST (GMT–5) through: http://grants.unwomen.org.
