1) Objective

The Robert Carr Fund for civil society networks announces an open Request for Proposals (RFP) for the funding period 2025-2027. The aim of this RFP is to support global and regional civil society networks addressing the health, social inclusion, and wellbeing of inadequately served populations (ISPs). Through this funding cycle, the Fund seeks to encourage continuity among existing partners while also welcoming applications from new and emerging networks, particularly those representing under-served populations and regions. By providing core funding and supporting activity needs, the Fund aims to strengthen social enablers, human rights, gender equality, and responses led by ISPs, thus contributing to the objectives outlined in its Strategic Plan 2025-2030.

The Robert Carr Fund will prioritize applications by global and/or regional networks and consortia of networks that are aligned with the Fund’s Theory of Change and Strategy. The RCF strategy has the following Result Areas:
Result Area 1: Network strength and influence:
• Networks have improved basic organizational status.
• Networks show increased fiscal capacity and sustainability.
• Networks are more representative of their constituencies and more democratically governed.
• Networks show increased influence and capacity to unite and mobilize movements.
Result Area 2: Human rights:
• Networks contribute to an improved human rights environment for at least one ISP.
Result Area 3: Access to services:
• Networks contribute to increased access to services and programs.
• Networks contribute to increased quality of services and programs.
Result Area 4: Resource accountability:
• Networks contribute to increased and sustainable financing of HIV response including ISP programs.

2) Eligibility

To be eligible for the grant, applicants must be civil society networks and/or consortia operating regionally and/or globally, led by or serving ISPs. While ISP-led networks are prioritized, non-ISP led networks are also eligible but must demonstrate meaningful engagement of ISPs in their work. The Fund recognizes the challenges some ISP groups may face in leadership roles and remains open to applications from networks addressing such contexts.

3) Location

The RFP is open to civil society networks worldwide, allowing for a global reach in addressing the needs of inadequately served populations across various regions and countries. Networks and/or consortia from the Middle East and North Africa, West Africa or Central Africa will be preferred.

4) Budget

Regional networks which have been in existence for more than two years can apply for a three year grant at an annual minimum of $100,000 and an annual maximum of $350,000. Global networks which have been in existence for more than two years can apply for a three year grant at an annual minimum of $100,000 and an annual maximum of $700,000. A consortium of networks can apply for a three year grant at an annual minimum of $100,000 and an annual maximum of $1,000,000 per year. Emerging regional and/or global networks which have been in existence for less than two years can apply for a three year grant at an annual minimum of $50,000 and an annual max- imum of $150,000.
