The initial applications for the GAME ON? Haiti Sports Micro Venture Fund have been reviewed and while site visits are ongoing the RFP has been reopened. The new deadline for submissions is May 23, 2011. Apply today!
The Fund is a partnership between Architecture for Humanity and Nike Inc. In the past 24 months the program has funded innovative projects in Afghanistan (Skate), Brazil (Football/Soccer), Kenya (Basketball) and the United States (American Football).
We are seeking proposals from Community or Implementing Partners for the next round of funding to support the construction of sports facilities offering programs that tackle social issues in the community. This Request for Proposal (RFP) process will award up to $125,000 in funds and is directed toward micro-interventions with a construction time line of 6 to 9 months. There are two grants available: $25,000 and $100,000 for building or upgrading facilities and completing existing projects. 10% of the funding will be earmarked for the professional design services and engineering.
Architecture for Humanity's ground team in Port-au-Prince will work with the successful Community or Implementing Partners on the design and construction administration of the facility.
