Detailed Description

The Disability Rights Fund (DRF) is inviting Letter of Interest (LIOs) from Disabled Persons Organizations (DPOs) for its three funding program to strengthen their participation in the advancement of human rights and disability-inclusive development.

DRF grants support both capacity of marginalized and emergent groups of persons
with disabilities (PWDs) to advocate for rights and inclusion and
ongoing efforts of national, state, provincial, regional, and district
level DPOs to advance Convention on the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities (CRPD) and Sustainable Development Goals implementation.

    coalitions at sub-national levels, to ensure that national legislation
    and policy is implemented at these levels, including through

    funding stream supports advancement of the CRPD at national levels
    through lobbying for legislative changes (including but not limited to

    the recommendations made by UN human rights mechanisms to States in regard to implementation of the rights of PWDs.
