Disability Rights Fund calls for proposals from DPOs to support UN Convention

Posted 15/2-10 at 15.59

The Disability Rights Fund (DRF) today (February 15th) announced its first 2010 grants round, "Moving Rights Forward." Grantmaking in this round will be targeted at DPOs in Mexico, Ukraine, selected states in India, as well as Indonesia.

The broad objective of the Fund, which was officially launched in March 2008, is to empower DPOs in the developing world and Eastern Europe/former Soviet Union to participate in ratification, implementation and monitoring of the CPRD.

Applicants from eligible countries may apply as: a) single organizations or partnerships for 12-month Small Grants and/or b) national DPO-led coalitions for 24-month National Coalition Grants. Grants to single organizations will range from USD 5,000 to 20,000 and will support efforts to build CRPD skills and to develop rights-based advocacy and monitoring on the CRPD. Grants to national DPO-led coalitions will range from USD 30,000 to 50,000 per year (60,000 - 100,000 over 24 months) and will support advocacy toward ratification of the CRPD, passage of specific legislation to accord with the CRPD, or the production of alternative/parallel reports.
