The Consortium for Elections and Political Process Strengthening (CEPPS) is seeking applications for its program entitled “Supporting Democracy Networks and Communities of Practice” under its Global Elections and Political Transitions (GEPT) Sub-grant Program.
CEPPS will provide sub-grants to local and/or regional organizations or networks to support activities that foster local, regional, and global communities of practice.
CEPPS seeks innovative, inclusive projects that will foster a community of practice on one of the following topics:
- Promoting open parliament: best practices for enhancing transparency and accountability of legislatures.
- Improving local representation: best practices for improving local governance and representing collective concerns to the national level government.
- Safeguarding the integrity of election data management systems: best practices in the design and maintenance of safe election data management systems.
- Mitigating election violence perpetrated against marginalized groups: effective approaches for reporting and responding to election violence experienced by traditionally marginalized stakeholders, including: women; ethnic and religious minorities; indigenous peoples; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex (LGBTI) individuals; people with disabilities; and youth.
- Promoting political inclusion of persons with disabilities: improving the political inclusion, participation, and empowerment of persons with disabilities.
- Promoting electoral justice: relevant, effective and efficient solutions to common challenges in adjudicating election complaints.
CEPPS plans to award up to six (6) sub-grants ranging between $20,000-$100,000.
- Qualified applicants may be non-U.S. regional and local nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), professional associations, and relevant special interest associations or coalitions in developing countries.
- Networks and Communities of Practice may be localized in a particular municipality, region, community, domestically or internationally, single or multiple country; projects supporting work at any combination of these levels will be considered.
- Organizations do not need be members of existing communities of practice or networks. If organizations are already active in existing communities of practice or international networks that could strategically widen the participation, audience and/or impact of the proposed work, they will explain how existing linkages will be leveraged.
- Awards shall not be made to organizations or individuals whose name appears on the “Lists of Parties Excluded from Federal Procurement and Nonprocurement Programs” or any U.S. government or United Nations lists of terrorists.
