Rapid Response Window: Short-Term Grants


Short-Term Grants (currently open for applications) up to 100,000 USD.

The Short-Term Grants stream is an opportunity for civil society organizations to implement urgent projects that address diverse barriers to women’s meaningful participation in a formal peace process or implementation of a peace agreement. Grants are awarded up to 100,000 USD for a maximum period of 6 months, and the stream is open to all ODA-eligible countries where formal peace processes or the implementation of peace agreements are taking place.  

The grants will be implemented with the support of 4 INGO partners, whose technical expertise and global reach will strengthen the impact of the RRW: Conciliation Resources, Cordaid, Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Diplomacy (NIMD), and the Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom (WILPF). 

There is no deadline for applications. The RRW is demand driven and accepts submissions on a rolling basis.
