The Strong Cities Network (SCN) is pleased to announce an opportunity for the award of up to two local innovation grants for community-based organizations to implement new projects and activities aimed at preventing and countering violent extremism (P/CVE) in locales across East and West Africa.
The local innovation grants are aimed at providing support to civil society organizations, and are intended to strengthen partnerships between communities and local government to develop inclusive and collaborative projects and activities to strengthen community resilience and social cohesion against violent extremism. The innovation grants aim to support specific prevention initiatives driven by local civil society actors (such as local youth, women, religious and traditional leaders and NGOs), as well as to support the broader capacity of those stakeholders to undertake such work.
Find out more about the Local Innovations Grants and how to apply for them here in English and in French. You can find the budget template for your application here.
The application deadline is 7 April 2017.
