Cities Alliance Innovation Programme – Call For Proposals 2019

Cities Alliance, a global partnership supporting cities to deliver sustainable development, hosted by the United Nations United Nations Office for Projects Services (UNOPS), is offering grants up to USD 50,000 to people working on innovative and accessible solutions for improving tenure security and land and property rights in any African country.

Rapidly growing cities within Ghana struggle to support people living in overcrowded slum settlements. Many of these residents live in unsanitary conditions and with the constant threat of corruption and forced eviction—all because they lack legal or formal protection to the places they live and work.

There is a growing number of people trying to solve this problem, and Cities Alliance wants to make sure they have the funding they need to grow and scale their promising solutions.

Who Can Apply For A Grant

Innovators, microenterprises, social entrepreneurs, community-based organisations, and national and local NGOs working in African cities

Deadline to apply: March 14, 2019

Over the last 19 years, Cities Alliance has awarded more than 400 grants totaling over $110 million in more than 80 countries, addressing a range of issues including urban poverty, local governance, and climate change.
