The Call for proposals for Haiti Recovery and Reconstruction is now closed.
Minister Oda announces Canada's continued support for Haiti (March 2, 2011)
The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) Partnerships with Canadians Branch (PWCB) launched a $30-million call for one-year Haiti recovery and reconstruction projects under its Partners for Development Program.
The deadline for submissions was November 16, 2010
Funding for the call falls under the $400-million pledge made by Canada at the March 31, 2010, International Donors' Conference in New York.
The objective of this call is to support projects that will achieve concrete recovery and reconstruction results on the ground to address real needs in Haiti.
Projects must be aligned with one or more of the priority sectors identified by the Government of Haiti at the meeting of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission (IHRC) on August 17, 2010: housing, debris removal, disaster preparedness, education, health, and agriculture.
CIDA will contribute between $500,000 and $5 million to projects. Projects must be completed by December 12, 2012. Projects will be funded on a cost-shared basis of up to 3:1. For example, partners would contribute at least $500,000 for a $2 million project.

PWCB will not accept application forms or supporting documentation by mail or by fax.
