Deadline: 8 November 2013
Open to: NGOs, civil society organizations, Stop TB Partners and National Tuberculosis Programmes partners in eligible countries (see list HERE )
Grants: range from from US$80,000 up to 1 million

Description

The Stop TB Partnership is leading the way to a world without tuberculosis (TB), a disease that is curable but still kills three people every minute. Founded in 2001, the Partnership’s mission is to serve every person who is vulnerable to TB and ensure that high-quality treatment is available to all who need it.

TB REACH was launched in January 2010 with multi-year grant support from the Canadian International Development Agency. TB REACH provides short-term and fast-track grants to projects that aim to achieve early and increased TB case detection using innovative approaches in populations that are poor and vulnerable and have limited access to care. Selection of projects is done via a competitive process by an independent Proposal Review Committee. To ensure the evidence of impact, an independent monitoring and evaluation agency is responsible for measuring progress and validating results. TB REACH has so far supported 109 projects in 44 countries through the first three waves of funding. The externally validated results of the first wave of funding shows an average 33 percent increase in case detection with a few projects even doubling the case detection within one year of implementation.

Eligibility

TB REACH supports Stop TB Partners, National Tuberculosis Programmes (NTP), NGOs, civil society organizations and other NTP Partners in specified countries (see list HERE for eligible countries). “For-profit” organizations cannot apply for funding but can co-fund projects. All international NGOs and foreign universities must demonstrate how they will partner with local NGOs and build their capacity for sustaining interventions and activities.

Grants

Each letter of intent (LOI) for general track funding should have a budget of US$200,000 to 1 million. For the CBO/CSO/Small NGO Track budget of LOIs should be from US$80,000 up to US$200,000. The CSO track is a special track of funding for small and local organizations and is NOT for NGOs that have an international presence, or organizations whose core operations are mainly biomedical in nature (e.g. laboratories/technical institutes/universities). Annual budget turnover of applicants in this track of funding must not exceed USD $500,000.

Application

The entire process for letters of intent will be completed online. Applicants must register register HERE. TB REACH accepts only one application per primary applicant, per country. Deadline for applications is November 8th, 2013.

Due to overwhelming demand from previous waves TB REACH has instituted a two stage process to review proposals. The first stage is to submit a letter of intent to TB REACH which will be reviewed by the Proposal Review Committee in December 2013. A subset of letters of intent will be requested to submit a full application. This will be communicated to applicants in mid-December. Two separate funding tracks will be available, a general track as well as funding track specifically designed for small civil society organizations and national NGOs.
