EbA Call for Proposals

  • Are island coalitions (5 NGO/CSOs with MoU) considered an acceptable project applicant?

    Consortia are welcome to apply. However, there should be a clearly defined lead agency, the “Applicant Organization”, as detailed in the concept note template. This agency, if successful, would be the responsible contract party.

  • Are there any guidelines regarding overhead costs for the lead applicant organization? Does the fund cover administrative costs of partner organizations in the consortia? If overheads are capped, would we be able to apply some of the costs of our Cuba consultant attorney as a direct cost?

    The EbA Facility cannot provide price estimating guidance/regulatory limitations.  Administrative costs should be kept to a minimum and be efficient and cost sensitive. Consultants should be budgeted as direct costs.

  • Can a non-Caribbean entity be the main applicant and project lead?

    This Call for Proposals focuses on improving the management and/or restoration of EbA-supporting marine and coastal zone habitats. Where a ridge to reef approach is being proposed we would expect that the share of EbA supporting coastal/marine habitats will be in the majority of measures of the overall proposal.

  • Can we delete the whole tabular format of the concept note template provided. I have seen a previous submission that made it through the first round, and it was without the tabular format?

    The preference is that you use the tabular format represented in the concept note template.
