Democracy Fund

14th United Nations Democracy Fund is now Open for Applications
Deadline Date – 22-Dec-2019
The United Nations Democracy Fund is expected to open its next proposal
window on 22 November 2019. The window is expected to remain open for
a month. Only project proposals submitted on-line in either English or
French, the two working languages of the UN, will be accepted.
UNDEF supports projects that strengthen the voice of civil society, promote
human rights, and encourage the participation of all groups in democratic
processes. UNDEF projects are two years long. Applicants can request a
grant of a minimum of 100,000 US dollars and a maximum of 300,000 US
dollars. The large majority of UNDEF funds go to local civil society
organizations — both in the transition and consolidation phases of
democratization. In this way, UNDEF plays a distinct role in complementing
the UN’s other work — the work with Governments — to strengthen
democratic governance around the world.
