Grant Opportunity: United Nations Fund RFP

United Nations Fund request for proposals: Civil Society Polio Transition and Integration Grants

The United Nations Foundation (UNF) is currently accepting grant application for civil society organizations (CSOs) to advance polio integration and transition efforts in transition priority countries and outbreak countries. Funds are to support CSO-led, domestic advocacy efforts for polio integration and transition. Advocacy efforts could include, but are not limited to:

  • Inclusion of polio integration/transition issues in existing immunization advocacy efforts
  • Advocacy to help ensure that any influx of funding for COVID-19 response is leveraged to sustain relevant polio eradication/immunization infrastructure to the extent possible
  • Advocacy to encourage investment in polio eradication and/or the implementation of national polio transition plans (as applicable)

Three sizes of grant proposals will be considered: (US$50,000, US$100,000, and US$200,000). Applications must be submitted by February 15, 2021. To receive more information including the project proposal template, please email
