The Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) has announced the third open Request for Proposals (RfP).

The fund was named in honour of Dr. Robert Carr, to recognize his memory and contributions to the global HIV response. Inspired by his commitment to vulnerable communities and protection of human rights, the RCNF is aimed at supporting global and regional civil society networks addressing critical factors for scaling up access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support; and protecting the rights of inadequately served populations (ISPs) across the world.

Global and regional networks and consortia of networks that meet the definitions and criteria set by this RfP, are invited to apply for a grant to support core-funding and/or programmatic needs of the network for up to three years (2016-2018).

The deadline for submission of proposals is 17 August 2015 at 12:00 (noon) CET.

More information about the RCNF can be found on the website.

Applicants that need clarification on the Request for Proposals can contact the RCNF secretariat via e-mail: Please write in subject: Question(s) RFP 2015. RCNF will publish all answers on the website. The deadline for questions is 1 August 2015.
