The application will be a two-step process: Expression of Interest (EOI), followed by full proposal for shortlisted applicants. Only organisations registered as not-for-profit organisations are eligible to be the lead Implementing Partner of a proposal/consortium. For-profit organisations can participate in the call for proposals as partners within a consortium.
When the funding round is launched, applying organisations should register their interest and create an account for the portal where application submissions will be uploaded. Applicants should then complete an EOI application form for their funding window of choice. The EOI will collect general information about the organisation, eligibility information, project details and funding requirements.
Applicants who are successful at EOI will be invited to submit a full proposal. The full proposal will require greater detail about the project, including relevant stakeholders, beneficiaries, Gender Equality and Social Inclusion (GESI) considerations, project risks, intended outcomes, milestones, tasks and a full budget breakdown of requested grant funding using a prescribed template – this will be made available to shortlisted applicants.
All applications must be completed in English. The following content is available to provide all the necessary support for completing a UK PACT Green Recovery Challenge Fund application:
- The Guidance Document

- Expression of Interest Template

- Detailed theme information
The template for the full proposal will be made available to shortlisted applicants. Should any further support be needed, the UK PACT Green Recovery Challenge Fund team will be available to provide assistance during the application process. For support, please email email@example.com.
