ABSTRACT A new guide from the International Council of AIDS Service Organizations describes how civil society can participate in applications under the new funding model.
The International Council of AIDS Service Organizations (ICASO) has released a guide on applications under the new funding model (NFM). The guide targets civil society and focuses primarily on standard applicants (i.e. applicants that are not involved in the transition phase but that may apply when the NFM is fully rolled out, likely at the beginning of 2014).
The guide describes the role of civil society in preparing for the eventual application, and in participating in the country dialogue and the concept note development process. It includes a grant application preparedness checklist. It also includes a section on selecting community sector representatives who will participate in the applications process.
The guide, titled “Civil Society Global Fund Application Preparedness Guide,” is available on the ICASO website here.
