Small Grants

The Small Grants funding stream helps organizations to build a broader movement to advance the CRPD at state and local levels. Organizations can use funds from DRF to broaden or diversify their membership, strengthen their capacity with respect to the CRPD, participate more actively in decision-making processes, or address specific articles of the CRPD. While DRF welcomes applications from any disabled persons’ organizations (DPOs), we encourage grassroots, emergent and more marginalized groups to apply. Small Grants are one-year grants ranging between USD 5,000–20,000 which support activities under the following priority areas

Mid-Level Coalition Grants

The Mid-Level Coalition funding stream supports civil society coalitions at sub-national levels, to ensure that national legislation and policy addressing the rights of persons with disabilities is implemented at more local levels. Mid-Level Coalition grants enable grantees to collaborate at state (in a federal system), provincial, regional, or district levels. Mid-Level Coalition grants are two-year grants ranging between USD 30,000–40,000 per year (USD 60,000–80,000 over the course of two years) and must be conceived and led by a DPO. These grants support activities under the following priority areas
