Request for Proposals – Creating Hope in Conflict: A Humanitarian Grand Challenge

Posted 4 months ago

Do you have an innovative solution to improve the lives of communities in conflict-affected regions?

The U.S. Agency for International Development, the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, Global Affairs Canada, and Grand Challenges Canada are partnering on Creating Hope in Conflict: A Humanitarian Grand Challenge (CHIC).

We seek bold, life-saving or life-improving innovations that better meet the needs of the most vulnerable and hardest-to-reach people impacted by humanitarian crises caused by conflict. 

We will prioritize funding locally-owned innovations that are closest to those affected by conflict, and which can demonstrate the benefits of more localized ways of responding to humanitarian crises. 

Through this Request for Proposals, we will award up to 20 seed innovations with CAD $250,000 each.

Proposed innovations must be relevant to one of three focus areas:

1. Access to energy

2. Access to Life-saving information

3. Access to health supplies and services


Please read the following request for proposals carefully to ensure that your innovation meets the required criteria:
