We carry out a formalized process of public Calls for Proposals (CFPs) to receive Project Profile Documents (PPDs) known as concept note developed according to the pre-set criteria. All proposals received by stipulated deadline are taken through a rigorous screening process.
The project or programme proposal screening is carried out in a fair, transparent, competitive multi-step process. It is overseen by the FONERWA Secretariat with ultimate funding decisions made by the Board of Directors based on evaluations and recommendations provided by the FONERWA secretariat and Investment Committee.

The materials include Project Profile Document (PPD) Template, PPD worked example, and Fund Monitoring and Evaluation Results Matrix. Any PPD must align with the Fund’s results matrix. The offline PPD template is intended to help applicants to develop their project concept.
Line Ministries/private sector/civil society should complete Project Profile Documents (PPDs) for proposals to be considered by the FONERWA Secretariat, in conformity with FONERWA Thematic Financing Windows/ key entry points.
PPDs will be screened by the Fund Management Team against eligibility criteria.
If successful, applicants will be asked to submit a full project document, and technical assistance (TA) and support from the Fund Management Team to elaborate or improve the proposal will be provided as needed.
Following proposal review at the Technical Appraisal step, the FONERWA Fund Technical Committee will review the appraised proposals and ensure that those recommended for funding to the Fund Managing Committee (FMC) are high quality and strategic in terms of how proposals are aligned with national priorities. Suggested project rankings will be further discussed at this stage before their submission to the FONERWA Fund Managing Committee for funding decisions.
The FONERWA Fung Managing Committee will be solely responsible for approval of final funding decisions. This will be based on recommendations at the various review levels of the Project Profile Document (PPD) & Project Document (PD).
