Call for proposals: Emergency Relief Response for Artisanal Mining Communities Impacted by COVID-19

 Delve  by Delve

The Extractives Global Programmatic Support (EGPS) Trust has launched an emergency window to respond to on-going impacts from the COVID pandemic on artisanal and small-scale mining communities across the globe.

Through this call, EGPS aims to provide short-term and medium-term assistance to artisanal mining communities, and their associated value chains, to cope with COVID-19 related impacts. Activities will comprise but not be limited to the following categories: (i) economic; (ii) social; (iii) environmental; and (iv) health and safety. In addition, a small pool of funds is available for research.

In order to help as many ASM communities in need as possible, small grants will be looked upon favorably to ensure local and small organizations working in ASM have priority access to this emergency window. Women-led or women-majority organizations working in ASM areas are particularly encouraged to apply. Implementation readiness is looked upon favorably.

Grant Limits

  • Small grants are under $50,000
  • Medium grants are between $50,000 and $300,000
