The United Nations Trust Fund for the Second International Decade of the World’s Indigenous Peoples has issued the 2013 Call for Proposals. Organizations working for indigenous communities around the world can apply for this opportunity. Since this is a small grant, grants of up to US $10,000 can be sanctioned to NGOs for a period of one year.
This is definitely an ideal opportunity for grant-seeking NGOs working for indigenous peoples since they will face less competition from bigger organizations. Besides, the proposal writing process is quite simplified. To apply for this opportunity, make sure that you have read the application guidelines available at this link
