TOPS Micro Grants Revised and Enlarged 

TOPS announces that it has revised and enlarged its Micro Grant small grant program to encourage greater flexibility in strengthening capacity for effective programming, which the Micro Grants are  intended to support. TOPS has raised the ceiling from the original $20,000 maximum award to $50,000. The intent of the Micro Grant program is still to encourage innovative capacity strengthening activities for partners and TOPS would encourage applicants to base their training budgets at around the original funding level. Additional funding would be available for assessment and documentation of promising practices, to contribute to gathering the evidence base for effective programming and future capacity building.
