India Development Marketplace Launches Call for Proposals
The World Bank Group has launched the 2014 India Development Marketplace (DM) call for proposals so that organizations in India can access overall funding of over $1 million for implementing innovative service delivery approaches in the Northeastern states of Assam, Mizoram, and Meghalaya.
The DM is a competitive grant-based program that identifies and supports nonprofit and for-profit organizations that effectively deliver crucial services to the poor. The DM also analyzes effective practices of these enterprises in order to expand innovative solutions in getting crucial services to poor populations.
Following the success of the 2013 India Development Marketplace, the 2014 competition focuses on enterprises that target the Northeastern states of Assam, Mizoram, and Meghalaya. In 2014, the Development Marketplace will award approximately 10 organizations with grant funding up to $150,000 (INR ₹94 lakhs). In addition to the financial resources, the grantees will be supported through a tailored capacity development program delivered with the local partners.
