FAQ

A total of $20,000 USD is available for supporting Capacity Strengthening Workshops in early 2022, and a total of $15,000 USD is available for the TAP Network “Innovation Fund” opportunities. However, this funding may be allocated across multiple proposals, depending on the amount and strength of proposals received. Therefore, while proposals may include budgets up to these funding caps, applicants should ensure that proposal budgets are commensurate with proposed activities, and flexibility in your proposal is welcomed. Identifying co-funding for your proposal is also encouraged.

Any independent civil society organizations or networks that are TAP Network “Partners” are eligible to apply for these opportunities, regardless of geographic location or organization size/budget. Funding cannot be allocated to individuals, and partnerships between organizations is also encouraged.

Yes, organizations that are not currently TAP Network “Partners” can apply for these funding opportunities, but must apply to become a TAP Network Partner in advance of submitting their proposal. Applying to become a TAP Partner is easy: simply fill out the application form here and outline your organization’s commitment and work related SDG16+ or SDG Accountability!  

You can find more information about becoming a TAP Network Partner on our website here.
