The full information is available in the guidelines, and in particular we draw your attention to the following:

  • Irish Aid have introduced multi-annual funding for this call. IDEA as a network has been calling for multi-annual funding for some years, so this is a very positive development for our sector. For this call for proposals, applications can be for either one or two year funding.
