The Local Data Action Solutions Initiative (LDA-SI) of the Sustainable Development Solutions Network will provide micro grants in the range of $2,000-$10,000 to organizations that have built (or are building) innovative sub-national sustainable development goals (SDGs) data solutions. These examples will each provide a replicable or adaptable model that can be applied in SDG initiatives in other locations.
Micro grants will support select organizations in their development and implementation of data solutions. The funds can be used by grantees to finance the purchase of datasets and data software, for convening learning events and workshops, or for covering staff time. The grantees will represent a range of methodological examples and contexts from around the world.
