RHD Action launches Small Grants Programme

19 April 2017

RHD Action is pleased to launch the first round of its Small Grants Programme with this Request for Proposal. This request for proposals for small grant funding provides the first opportunity for RHD Action to support groups across the globe who are already addressing the problems of the rheumatic heart disease in their countries, regions or communities and to bring the work of key RHD stakeholders under the RHD Action banner. 

This Small Grants Programme is made possible with funding from the Medtronic Foundation to RhEACH and the World Heart Federation.  

An amount of US $2,000 will be made available to fund an educational, awareness-raising or advocacy event designed to achieve one or more of the objectives of RHD Action’s recently adopted Priorities Pyramid. 

Five projects will be awarded that are designed to be completed within six months of a start date no later than 1 August 2017.

Please see the RFP and Guidelines and Application Form for detailed information about application requirements.
