The RRM provides grants that respond to emerging, unanticipated and/or time-bound opportunities that will help FP2020 meet its goal of enabling 120 million more women and girls using contraceptives by 2020.
The RRM supports projects that amplify existing family planning programs in an FP2020 focus country. RRM grants are catalytic, unblocking challenges to stimulate FP2020 work and aims.
RRM funding is disbursed rapidly by the FP2020 Secretariat and must be spent within a maximum of 12 months by the Grantee. The majority of RRM-funded projects last 3 to 6 months.
Awards will not exceed US$ 250,000. However, the vast majority of RRM-funded projects receive less than US$100,000.
The RRM follows a dual track, being either (1) a consultancy-based contract or (2) an activity-based grant around one of four main themes:
The RRM cannot be used to fund the following:
The FP2020 Secretariat accepts new RRM applications on a rolling basis.
Prospective organizations can apply through two distinct channels:
The FP2020 Secretariat strongly encourages applicants to use the forms and templates provided on our website (especially the RRM budget template).
Selection of RRM applications is competitive, based on how relevant the proposed project is to fulfill the RRM mandate and how much funding is available at any given time. Applicants must demonstrate that the grant will help address an unanticipated need or urgent opportunity and that there are clear benefits or reasons to secure rapid funding.
Selection of RRM grants will be handled by the FP2020 Secretariat, in consultation with our country support teams as appropriate.
All grants will undergo a degree of validation and due diligence. The following documents must be provided by the applicant (templates available in the “Resources” section below):
 We recommend that your project only uses ONE of the main strategies listed above (technical assistance, training, advocacy, service delivery). If more than one strategy applies to your project, it is not possible for you to apply using our on-line system. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request an “off-line” application form in Microsoft Word format (please write “Off-line application requested” in the subject line of your email).
The FP2020 Secretariat is committed to keeping the RRM’s reporting requirements as light-touch as possible. We do not require a full M&E plan or logical framework.
The FP2020 Secretariat requires a mid-term report needs to describe in narrative fashion what was achieved with the grant funds during the first half of the project.
The FP2020 Secretariat requires a final report within 60 days of the end of the project. This report needs to describe the achievements of the project as a whole in narrative form and provide a full financial accounting of the grant funds.
Reporting templates will be shared by the FP2020 Secretariat one month prior to the reporting deadline. Reporting can be done through two different channels:
In addition to the reports described above, RRM Grantees are encouraged to submit intermittent updates of grant activities, providing a sense of what the organization is accomplishing with the grant.
The FP2020 Secretariat may decide to conduct an independent case study to document and assess the grant’s impact. In that case, the RRM Grantee is expected to support and accommodate the work of an external consultant to carry out the study.
