The primary purpose of this grant is to support organizations and/or coalitions that seek to ameliorate one or multiple constraints to women’s economic participation and empowerment by providing innovative solutions to directly or indirectly facilitate women’s access to or control over economic resources. Grants are intended to address an overall challenge to women’s economic participation, and as such are not restricted to specific sectors or industries. However, awards can support activities in a specific geography or sector.
This grant is open to businesses and business service providers (BSPs), or coalitions of these entities.2
Consortia of firms or BSPs may seek to implement a solution to address an industry wide obstacle to women’s employment in the sector, such as employing women in hotel chains or customer facing industries. Coalitions may include local government institutions such as municipalities when the proposal constitutes or is in support of a collaborative local economic development initiative.
