Peace Annual Program Statement (APS) Grants*
The SAFE Program Peace Annual Program Statement (APS) is a funding framework to support local innovative initiatives and peace messaging in response to emerging conflicts in Uganda.
Activities supported by the Peace APS should possess the potential to prevent conflict at the local level, be linked to local priorities in order to mitigate the risk of violent conflicts, and facilitate constructive engagement of local stakeholders in transforming emerging conflict in the community.
The geographic and programmatic focus for the SAFE 2013 APS will address emerging conflicts identified by the recent SAFE Program Baseline Assessment and the Findings from both assessments have identified Gulu, Amuru, Lira, Moroto, and Kibaale districts as at risk of emerging conflicts, and take priority under this year’s Peace APS grants.
*Note: Peace APS grants only support activities that address emerging conflicts and not already existing conflicts. Solicitation for grants under the Annual Peace APS will be released yearly and awards will be made on a rolling basis.
