Previous funding round in 2013
The closure date for submission of proposals passed on 22 July 2013 at 12:00 CET.
Applications received after this deadline will not be taken into consideration. Only applications submitted through the official online form will be taken into consideration by the Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF).
The Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) will continue to fund both global and regional networks, but with a positive funding bias towards proposals submitted by consortia of networks, followed by proposals submitted by global networks, followed by proposals submitted by regional networks. Regional networks are encouraged to form or join a consortium for a joint application. We are likely to fund larger consortia or networks in a variety of sectors, rather than a broad selection of networks in many sectors.
Proven track record
The Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) will prioritize funding for networks that have a proven track record in working towards the Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) outcomes. New and emerging networks can be recommended for funding to the extent that they fill a gap in the global HIV and AIDS response, and are submitting an application in a consortium with other global and/or regional networks with a proven track record. We will prioritize funding networks that are open, enabling coordinated action and dialogue within the network membership. The Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) is unlikely to fund professional associations, project consortia, or groups of individuals as ‘networks’ if they do not fulfill these characteristics.
No funding priorities for previous grantees
The Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund (RCNF) will not prioritize proposals by grantees of the 2012 Robert Carr civil society Networks Fund funding round. All applications will be reviewed competitively, according to the definitions and funding priorities set by this Request for Proposals. A new application by a 2012 grantee will be weighed together with their interim reporting results, achieved during the first year of funding. Grantees of the 2012 funding round are encouraged to form or join a consortium for a joint application.

Acknowledgement form Request for Proposals 2013
Through the “RFP Acknowledgement Form 2013” applicants could confirm their intention to submit a bona fide proposal and designate its representative to whom communications may be directed. This acknowledgement is not a requirement to submit a proposal, but enables RCNF to better identify potential applicants, and communicate with them in. If a new consortium submits an acknowledgement of its intention to submit an application, and the collaboration does not work out, the networks (or group of networks) involved are still allowed to submit an application without giving notice.
All information is treated confidentially. Please check the information security protocol of the organisation responsible for the online application form on their website.
Application form Request for Proposal 2013
During the Request for Proposal 2013 applicants could fill out an online application form and an activity framework. These forms are not toe filled out now as the founding round was closed on 22 July 2013.
