Funding to Support Parity Projects

FCM’s Toward Parity in Municipal Politics program is looking for local initiatives that will look to strengthen opportunities or reduce barriers for women to fully participate in municipal politics/local government. The deadline to apply for demonstration project funding is August 28.

Toward Parity’s national consultations have prioritized interventions that focus on mentorship, increasing access to information and breaking down informal networking, and decision-making. While projects are welcome in any category, priority will be given to initiatives that support one of these areas of intervention.

Projects are eligible for up to $5,000 in funding. The grants are intended to be either seed funding to incubate a new idea and gain support for gender equality in the community or to scale up an idea or initiative that has shown promise.

The application deadline is August 28, 2019 at 11 p.m. PT. The project must be implemented between mid-September 2019 and June 1, 2020.

For further information on the funding for demonstration projects please review the FCM web page.
