Road Safety Grants Programme – Round 7 Call for Concept Notes

Back to news

The Global Road Safety Partnership is pleased to announce the launch of the Call for Concept Notes for Round 7 of the Road Safety Grants Programme.

Initiated in early 2012 with funding from Bloomberg Philanthropies, the primary objective of the Road Safety Grants Programme is to support civil society organizations in selected low- and middle-income countries to advocate for policy change to protect road users.  It also supports civil society organizations to promote the successful implementation of evidence-based policies. Since its inception the programme has awarded 36  grants to 27 civil society organizations in 8 countries.

In 2015, with continued funding under the Bloomberg Initiative for Global Road Safety, the grants programme is expanding to include new cities and countries.

Concept notes will be accepted from civil society organizations applying to work on policy change or policy implementation, on national, provincial, or municipal levels, in the following countries:

  • China
  • India
  • Philippines
  • Tanzania
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

Concept notes will also be accepted from civil society organizations applying to work on policy change or policy implementation in the following cities:

  • Brazil: Fortaleza, Sao Paulo
  • China: Shanghai
  • Colombia: Bogota
  • Ethiopia: Addis Ababa
  • Ghana: Accra
  • India: Mumbai
  • Indonesia: Bandung
  • Thailand: Bangkok
  • Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City

Legacy Countries

Applications will also be considered from Brazil, Cambodia, Kenya, Mexico and Turkey which propose to contribute to on-going advocacy campaigns already supported by the Road Safety Grants Programme.

Applicant organizations must be registered legal entities capable of entering into contractual arrangements, receiving foreign funds, and assuming legal and financial obligations.
