Project Description

Communities in Colonia lack sufficient resources to secure needed development funding. Asociación Civil Fondo Región Colonia (FRC) mobilizes local resources and provides grants for projects that encourage community participation and exchanges among local organizations and mobilize local, national, and international resources from the public and private sectors. At the IAF, we support community-led solutions to unlock private, public, and community resources for grassroots development in Uruguay. FRC’s activities strengthen grassroots organizations through education and training and build peer-to-peer learning and action networks.

This grant is part of our broader initiative to encourage innovative and entrepreneurial thinking to expand local resources for grassroots development.
