Small Grants Programme
Small Grant Programme
Support to village level implementation through small grant programme. It is recognized that in some cases, communities may need additional financial support to secure the technical and legal support necessary for them to obtain legal title over forestland. Small grant will be used to support small community level initiatives relevant to PFM, REDD+ and climate change. These initiatives will enhance community learning through practical application of knowledge gained. The project will also establish a modest small grants programme such as VICOBA and SACCOS that will provide direct funding to villages in small groups/women association groups to develop PFM within their villages which have been financially constrained due to lack of support from government or NGOs. This will be administered by MJUMITA and will be offered on a competitive basis, and made available only to those villages that have been supported through this project directly. The exact modalities for establishing this small grant scheme will be worked out during the first few months of the project.
