Small Grants Programme in OP 05 has been completed. We

as fresh tranche of funds are available, a notification
will be placed for inviting new proposals on the
websites. This is for the information of one and all "
The GEF UNDP/SGP in India is
implemented country wide as a Full Scale Project (FSP).

it prioritizes. The proposals for accessing the grants
needs to be submitted by Nongovernmental organizations
(NGOs) and Community based organizations (CBOs) and the
Non- profit Organization as per the template to the
respective regional offices of the CEE.
