Types of proposals

The GPI and YPI welcomes proposals from both civil society organizations (CSOs) and UN agencies, funds and programs. All applicants interested in applying  are advised to reach out to the PBF Secretariat in the project country for guidance. The GPI and YPI are open to three types of project proposals: 

  1. Joint UN proposals: with up to three UN entities as direct fund recipients (to be submitted by the convening UN recipient after receiving the endorsement from the UN Resident Coordinator) 

  1. Joint UN-CSO proposals: with up to two UN entities and one CSO as direct fund recipients (to be submitted by the convening UN recipient after receiving the endorsement from the UN Resident Coordinator) 

  1. CSO proposals: with one CSO as direct fund recipient (to be submitted by the CSO independently). 

For CSO applicants

In order to be declared eligible, CSOs must be assessed as technically, financially and legally sound by the PBF and its fiduciary agent, the Multi-Partner Trust Fund Office. CSOs need to meet all the criteria to be deemed eligible for this call. In the second stage, CSOs will also be assessed with respect to protection from sexual exploitation and abuse. In previous rounds, the Fund has funded mostly international CSOs and some national CSOs. We urge all CSO applicants to check the eligibility criteria before applying. 

CSO applicants must provide the following: 

  1. Proof of current valid formal registration as non-profit with a social mission for the duration of the proposed project in 1) the country where the headquarters is located and 2) the project country. 

  • NOTE: If registration is done on an annual basis in the country, the organization must have the current registration and obtain renewals for the duration of the project in order to receive subsequent funding tranches.  

  1. HACT micro-assessment score, if assessed in the project country since March 2021. In order to be eligible, the organisation will need to receive a low-risk score in a HACT micro-assessment. Low-risk scores from March 2021 and onwards will be accepted. If not yet assessed, PBF will commission assessments for organizations who make it to the second stage of the process and get invited to develop their concept notes into project proposals. The questionnaire such an assessment is based on can be found here for reference. 

  1. UN reference or donor reference, attesting to satisfactory financial and programmatic management of a grant in the last three years.
