Funding brief: Building upon its experience in partnering with a broad range of organizations, CEPPS will support activities that increase participation of traditionally marginalized populations in electoral processes by providing sub-grants to targeted local and/or regional organizations. CEPPS seeks projects which will:
● Decrease barriers and increase access to electoral processes for traditionally marginalized communities, including women, persons with disabilities, youth, ethnic and religious minorities, LGBTI individuals, and indigenous populations.
● Inform and empower all members of society to become more active participants in electoral processes.
● Strengthen the capacity of local and regional organizations and/or networks engaged in promoting the inclusion of traditionally marginalized groups in political life.
● Support organizations/networks in becoming centers for information sharing, technical assistance, and training to other local organizations on more effectively engaging traditionally marginalized populations in electoral processes.
This sub-grants program seeks to address these challenges by providing support to organizations working to empower traditionally marginalized groups and create more inclusive electoral and political transitions processes. Applicants to the sub-grants program will be asked to undertake activities designed to increase their technical as well as organizational capacity to increase access to high-quality research, information, training, technology, and technical assistance. Examples of illustrative activities in the development of inclusive electoral processes may include, but are not limited to:
● Public outreach, education, and/or media campaigns
● Legislative and/or legal advocacy around electoral law, policies, and practices
● Training, sensitizing, and capacity building for election management bodies (EMBs)
● Provision of professional development and/or academic courses that provide training on increasing participation of marginalized groups in electoral processes
● Civic organizing
