Cities Alliance New Catalytic Fund 2014

Picture: Cities Alliance

Cities Alliance has launched a call for proposals for the 2014 edition of Catalytic Fund (CATF), a Cities Alliance funding instrument which provides grant support for innovative projects that strengthen and promote the role of cities in poverty reduction and in sustainable urban development. This year’s edition will be based around the theme: ‘Know your city: Information for transformation’.

This topic is in-line with Cities Alliance’s approach to promoting better knowledge about cities and to foster innovative and collaborative ways to generate information with view to bridging the engagement, information and accountability gaps between city governments and their citizens.

Projects should therefore cover one of the following key focus areas: 

  1. Know your city finances and assets  
  2. Know your citizens 
  3. Know ALL of your city and its constituencies 
  4. Know the future potential of your city
  5. Know the emerging issues 

Project proposals should be limited to US $50,000 – US $200,000 and must demonstrate activities that will maintain gender mainstreaming in-line with Cities Alliance’s approach. The closing date for applications is the 30th June 2014.

For more information on the 2014 Catalytic Fund, including eligibility, how to apply, and further details on gender mainstreaming or topic details, please consult the Cities Alliance website
