UNODC Small Grants Facility to support victims of trafficking

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime has launched the 2011 Small Grants Facility under the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for victims of human trafficking. The Facility aims to provide tangible support through established channels to victims of trafficking in persons.

NGOs are invited to submit proposals to apply for fundng on projects supporting victims of trafficking. NGOs can submit applications on behalf of a coalition (more than 4 organizations), a consortium (minimum of 2 other organizations and a maximum of 4), but the NGO will be the primary focal point and will be financially responsible for the delivery of the grant.

Grants can be requested for up to USD 25,000 per year with a project duration ranging between six and 36 months. All applications are to be submitted in English.

In 2011, two thematic priorities have been established:
- Cross-border and inter-regional activities providing direct humanitarian, legal and/or financial assistance to victims.
- Effective remedies for victims of human trafficking, including, but not limited to, legal support, access to justice and compensation.

All proposals must focus on either one or both of the above-listed thematic priorities. If an application fails to respond to at least one of the two thematic priorities, it will be ineligible to receive funding.

Applications are to be submitted online. The submission deadline is 30 April 2011. For more information, visit this link.
