New UK Aid Direct funding round opening

A new UK Aid Direct funding round will open for applications on Monday 4 March. We will be accepting applications for both Community Partnership and Impact grants.

As with previous rounds, proposals will need to demonstrate how they address the Global Goals. We will also be particularly welcoming applications focussed on tackling urban poverty.

Applicant organisations must be based either in the UK, in one of the lowest 50 countries in the UN Human Density Index (HDI), or one of the Department for International Development’s (DFID) priority countries. UK based organisations will need to demonstrate how they are working in partnership with an organisation based in the country their project will be operating in.

An information leaflet is available to download from this website.

Full details on the Theory of Change, eligibility criteria of each grant type, application process and new guidance materials will be made available on ukaiddirect.org from Wednesday 20 February.

A guidance webinar to support applicants will also be held on Tuesday 26 February at 11.30 – 12.30 and registration in advance is required.

The application portal will then open on Monday 4 March and deadline for submission will be Wednesday 17 April.

We are now in the final stages of informing organisations invited to the full application stage of the November 2016 general funding round, if they have successfully been awarded a grant.

This follows a thorough review of all applications, full integrity due diligence, and financial assessments.

Individual feedback will be provided to all unsuccessful organisations in due course. Meanwhile, we have compiled a lessons learnt document to profile general feedback on the applications received during this funding round. This comprehensive overview is available to download here.
