Request for Proposals: Global Women, Peace and Security Rapid Response Fund

The SHE WINS Rapid Response Fund (RRF) is a global funding mechanism administered by Search for Common Ground. It is designed to respond to urgent needs in the current women, peace and security (WPS) landscape across 78 countries (listed below).

The objective is to provide simple-to-access funds directly to a diverse range of women-led initiatives to respond to emerging crises, and seize new openings for the advancement of WPS outcomes in fragile and conflict affected contexts.


The SHE WINS RRF supports projects that advance the role of women peacebuilders. Funding is meant primarily for women-led or women-serving groups. Only rarely will the SHE WINS RRF support INGOs.

While the SHE WINS RRF aims for a geographic balance, we can fund only a limited number of projects per country. If we do not receive strong applications from a specific country, we may not fund work in that country. Eligible projects fall into one of three funding types:

  • In-kind support ($500 to $25,000; 3 months or less): Support for specific and time-bound WPS activities, which may include: travel for key activities, one-off convenings, and material goods and services, including consultancies. Under this stream, funds will not be issued directly to
    the applicant. Rather, Search for Common Ground will procure the goods and services and then provide as in-kind assistance to the (formal or informal) women’s groups.

  • Medium grants ($25,000 to $100,000; from 3 to 9 months): Grants for quick-impact initiatives by registered local groups, which may include: emerging opportunities to advance WPS or projects in closing spaces to protect women’s rights and safety. For any project over $30,000, the applicant must have a Unique Entity ID from or be ready to work with us to secure this registration.

  • Large grants ($100,000 to $250,000; from 9 to 12 months): Grants for longer-term efforts by larger formal organizations. We envision only a small number of awards under this stream.
