The Canadian International Development Agency has launched a call for proposals for short-term recovery and reconstruction projects in Haiti. The agency is offering up to 5 million Canadian dollars (USD4.9 million) for the “most meritorious” recovery and reconstruction projects put forward by Canadian organizations.
Groups must have at least three years of experience in Haiti and demonstrate existing in-country capacity to undertake programming to be eligible for the funding. Proposed projects must have a maximum planned duration of one year and tackle national priorities of Haiti including housing, debris removal, disaster preparedness, education, health and agriculture.
Funding for these short-term recovery and reconstruction projects in Haiti forms part of Canada’s 400 million Canadian dollars commitment for the quake-ravaged nation pledged in March’s donor conference.
