Guidelines for Submitting Applications to the Small Grants Program
The Small Grants Program seeks to help the people of Myanmar by supporting local organizations
that identify, respond to, and advocate for the needs of their communities.

All types of projects will be considered, but a successful grant application will include the follow-
ing:

Focused objectives, a detailed work plan, and a clear timeline;
Broad participation in the community;
Networking and advocacy activities;
Monitoring and evaluation activities that include community feedback;
An indication of the long-term impact of the project;
A reasonable budget (Average grant size is $10,000. Cost-sharing is viewed favorably).
Please note that charitable donations are outside the scope of this program. As a general rule,
