Feminist Response and Recovery Fund call for proposals: After you apply
We are no longer accepting applications for this call for proposals. The deadline for applications was March 25, 2021, at 12:00 p.m. (noon) Pacific time.
5. After you apply
Once you have successfully submitted your application through FluidReview, a confirmation email generated by the system will be sent to the owner of the account within 24 hours. This confirmation email is considered the acknowledgment of receipt of applications. To prevent emails from being classified as spam by the email server, organizations should add the following email address to their contacts: CFC.Demandes.financement-funding.applications.SWC@cfc-swc.gc.ca.
Not all eligible applications will be approved under this call for proposals. Funding is limited and subject to the Department’s annual budget considerations and allocation of funds by Parliament.
The Department anticipates communicating decisions made regarding applications by early Summer 2021. All decisions (approval or rejection) will be confirmed via email. The Minister for Women and Gender Equality makes all funding decisions. Decisions regarding the assessment of applications are final and there is no appeal process.
If your project is approved, a program officer will contact you to establish a funding agreement.
Activities cannot begin before the project is approved and an agreement has been signed by both the organization and the Department.
Successful organizations must agree to defer any public announcements until the Minister for Women and Gender Equality has publicly announced the project.
If your project is approved, you will be required to report on the progress of your project. Reporting requirements will be outlined in a funding agreement.
Funded organizations must submit a final report, as specified in the agreement.
Timely reporting shows good project management. Should your organization fail to submit progress reports or a final report on time, it may impact your organization’s ability to obtain funding from the Department in the future.
Project Results and Impacts
The Department will collect and disseminate information on the outputs and impacts of the activities funded through this call for proposals; this information is an important part of our accountability to Canadians. Funding recipients will be expected to participate in the collection of performance (impact) data, program evaluations, and audits. Through regular project reporting (at least annually), data will be collected on progress of their activities, how the project was implemented, what was accomplished, who and how many benefited from the activities, and the concrete impact of the activities. This information will be used to report on how the Women’s Program is helping Canadians, assist the Department in making decisions about its programs, and showcase the important work of women’s and equality-seeking organizations.
Data will be collected in order to demonstrate progress towards the outcomes of the Women’s Program:
- Stakeholder access to resources to advance women’s equality is increased
- Stakeholder knowledge to advance women’s equality is increased
- Partnerships and collaborations are mobilized
- Stakeholder knowledge to advance women’s equality is applied
- Collective action to support women’s equality is strengthened
- Systemic change to support women’s equality is advanced
Funding recipients determine and engage stakeholders who have the levers and potential to bring about gender equality improvements for women and could include: communities, governments, private and voluntary sector organizations, advocates and academics.
Given that systemic change is a long-term, complex process that can be influenced by factors outside of the project’s control, not all projects will be able to demonstrate or achieve long-term outcomes within the lifecycle of the project. Case studies during the Department evaluation cycle could be conducted to capture evidence of systemic change that may have occurred after the end of the project.
Given the purpose and nature of individual projects funded by the Program, it is understood that while projects will contribute to some of the outcomes and indicators in the framework, they are not expected to meet all of the Women’s Program outcomes.
