Are you part of a civil society organization in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Kenya, Mali, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania, or Uganda working on improving the efficiency and equity of public spending in the health, education, and water service sectors? If so the, Transparency and Accountability Program (TAP) is looking for up to ten organizations to design and implement national, sub-national, and/or local level citizen report cards, as well as, conduct advocacy focused on improving the effectiveness of public spending funding and the service delivery processes within the health and education sectors.
If you think your work is or is likely to have a tangible impact over the next year in either of the desired areas, you should apply by 21 October 2011 as part of the “Open Window” grant process. Organizations selected for the grant will receive financial (up to $50,000 USD) and technical support for 12 months, including technical resources, training, and peer learning opportunities. In addition to this grant, TAP will provide funding for representatives from grantee organizations to participate in peer learning activities with other grantees during the course of the work. TAP will also provide resources, training on methodological issues, individual support from a “help desk,” and short-term research and advocacy experts for grantees, as requested, to help each organization achieve its goals.
We’re big fans of TAP’s work here at Global Integrity. If you’re not familiar with them, TAP works with CSO’s in low- and middle-income countries to find tangible results to major problems with public spending and service delivery in the health, water, and education sectors. They have a great reputation and great results.
