P4G Eligibility Checklist

Is your partnership eligible to apply for P4G funding?

Nearly two thirds of applications for P4G funding in 2018 and 2019 were found to be ineligible. Before you apply, please take the time to review the checklist below. All six criteria must be met in order to qualify for consideration as a 2020 P4G Partnership. Partnerships that do not meet all of these criteria will not be evaluated. For examples, please see the Eligibility Case Studies.

Primary SDG focus: Partnership activities focus on one or more of P4G’s five target Sustainable Development Goals: Zero Hunger (2); Clean Water and Sanitation (6); Affordable and Clean Energy (7); Sustainable Cities and Communities (11); Responsible Consumption and Production (12).
Start-up or Scale-up: The partnership is in either the start-up or the scale-up phase of development, past the initial concept development phase.
Country Focus: Partnership activities benefit Bangladesh, Colombia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, South Africa, and/or Vietnam (required for start-ups; strongly preferred for scale-ups).
Partners: The partnership is led by a non-commercial organization, has at least one commercial or private sector partner, and will be able to secure support from a relevant government entity.
Additionality: The partnership’s work is “additional” to what is already happening or what would naturally happen in the marketplace.
Market Potential: The partnership must be designed to overcome financial, institutional, operational, or other critical barriers to meeting the SDGs with an innovative, scalable, and commercially viable solution.
