1) Objective

Rapid Response Grants – RRGs are a unique, flexible, and short-term financing model created by the Urgent Action Fund to provide timely and strategic support for actions that:

  • Respond to situations of risk or threats that impact the security of women activists and defenders, their collectives, or organizations.
  • Take advantage of opportunities to advance or deter setbacks to the rights of a diversity of women.

Opportunity Grants support actions that respond to strategic opportunities to defend and promote women’s and LBTIQ+ rights, making it possible to establish legal precedent, influence policies, and/or promote changes in social or cultural practices.
Opportunity grants can fall in the framework of any topic related to women’s rights, gender, racial, or environmental justice. The action must be urgent and must be an immediate intervention that: (1) responds to an unexpected (unplanned) situation, an attack against the integrity or life of women defenders, or a threat against women’s rights; and (2) takes advantage of a window opportunity to defend and promote women’s rights.

2) Eligibility

The action must be implemented by civil society organizations representing a diversity of women (including trans women*) or mixed gender organizations led by women.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Latin America.

4) Budget

These grants can have a duration of three to six months and a 5,000 USD maximum amount.

5) Application

Applications can be submitted online all year round.
