The Global Road Safety Partnership wishes to announce the launch of the Call for Proposals for Round 3 of the Road Safety Grants Programme.
Initiated in early 2012, the grants programme is part of the Road Safety in Ten Countries (RS10) programme, funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies and managed and administered by the Global Road Safety Partnership. Proposals will be accepted from organizations working in the countries covered by RS10: Brazil, Cambodia, China, India, Kenya, Mexico, Russia, Turkey and Viet Nam.
The Road Safety Grants Programme aims to strengthen the capacity of NGOs as they advocate for improvements in road safety policies, and work to reduce death and serious injury resulting from road crashes. Priority consideration will be given to high-quality project proposals that focus on risk factors promoted by RS10 in the selected countries. Projects with a focus on road safety advocacy at a national scale will also be considered.
Details on the selection criteria and grants process can be downloaded from our website in a wide selection of languages by clicking here. A set of application documents is also available (in English only) for organizations who wish to apply. Please note that proposals from countries outside the RS10 countries will not be considered.
The deadline for submission of completed applications is Friday, 8 March 2013 at 18:00 hours, Central European Time. Completed applications fulfilling the selection criteria will be reviewed by an international panel of experts, and recommendations for funding will be made by an advisory working group.
We encourage applications and the circulation of this newsletter to organizations meeting the stated requirements.
