A new UK Aid Direct funding round will open for applications on Monday 4 March. Applications will open for both Community Partnership and Impact grants. 

Proposals will need to demonstrate how they address the Global Goals and applications focused on tackling urban poverty will be particularly welcome. Applicant organisations must be based in either the UK, in one of the lowest 50 countries in the UN Human Development Index (HDI), or one of the Department for Interational Development's (DFID) priority countries.

Full details on the Theory of Change, eligibility criteria for each grant, the application process and new guidance materials will be made available on the UK Aid Direct website from Wednesday 20 February. 

A guidance webinar will be held by Mannion Daniels the fund manager on Tuesday 26 February at 11:30-12:30 (GMT) for which registration is required. 

The application portal will be open on Monday 4 March and the deadline for submission will be Wednesday 17 April.
