SCPA Grants

about-grants
Grants Scheme (GS) is one of the main means of supporting the various areas of engagement in the SCPA, as well as allowing for retaining flexibility to support new, innovative approaches that reinforce stronger partnerships between key actors in Community Policing.
Focus
The current scheme will be taken forward in the new programme, building on the recent efforts by the SACP to evolve the SGS to provide support to extend certain projects and create greater sustainability, especially given that the issue of sustainability of projects was a major point raised by those involved in the current scheme.
The GS should be seen as a way of underpinning the work being carried out in the three programme pillars (RPD-CPS, SMS and DVS), but should also retain the benefits of being able to engage a wide range of actors through the use of smaller grants.

What is.. How to...?

1What is Grants Scheme
SCPA Programme is based on Grants Scheme. In addition to and in complementarity with the three main pillars the program will include a Grants Scheme. The new Grants Scheme will serve as a means of supporting the sustainability of the various areas of engagement in the program, as well as promoting new, innovative approaches that reinforce stronger partnerships between key actors in Community Policing. The Grants Scheme will underpin the work being carried out in the three program pillars (RPD-CPS, SMS and DVS), and should also engage a wide range of actors through the use of smaller grants.
2Modalities
The modalities for supporting the GS should build on the current system, with a central grants fund, an allocation for management of the GS and the appointment of a GS manager. An increasing level of responsibility should be taken over by national counterparts. Additional support with regard to the M&E systems should be provided by the SCPA M&E expert.
3Assumptions
The GS will rely a lot on the cooperation at local level of a large variety of state and non-state actors. Such cooperation needs to remain open and collegiate in order for the GS to work and to be used as a mechanism that brings results at the outcome level, and not just at the output level. The role of the GS manager and the M&E expert will be vital in ensuring that the project selection process remains transparent and driven by the overall objective of the programme.

The GS should include the capacity to provide main grants for projects in the TRPDs that support the joint work of the ASP, local institutions and communities to address local safety and security concerns.
