USAID Nove Pravosuddya Justice Sector Reform Program announces a competition for grant application to analyze the effectiveness of using the citizen report cards (CRC) methodology in the courts of Ukraine, which is designed to assess the work of courts by citizens in order to improve the efficiency of court procedures and the quality of service.
The purpose of this grant program is to support the well-established cooperation of courts with civil society organizations aimed at improving the quality of judicial services and strengthening the public trust in the judiciary. Recipients of grants under this grant program will be Ukrainian non-government organizations (NGOs) capable of analyzing the recommendations provided to courts based on the results of the citizens report cards (CRC) surveys in 2019.
New Justice Program anticipates awarding up to three grants. It is anticipated that each grant award may range between 100 thousand UAH and 150 thousand UAH, but the final amount will be dependent upon grant activities and final negotiation and may be lower or higher than that range.
The project activities funded by the grant should tentatively start on September 16, 2020 and cannot exceed four months. The applications must be submitted no later than August 10, 2020, by 6:00 p.m.
