ACTIF prioritizes applications from LGBTQ2I-led and/or focused organizations. Our target is that within each call, a majority of projects funded undertaken by both Canadian and international LGBTQ2I organizations.
ACTIF recognizes that there is no single model or definition of LGBTQ2I-led or focused. In particular, ACTIF recognizes that there are many intersections between human rights work, HIV/AIDS work, feminist organizing and other subsectors. Representation of LGBTQ2I people in the organization, involvement of the organization in LGBTQ2I-focused coalitions and networks, such as Dignity Network Canada, their track record of working on LGBTQ2I issues and with LGBTQ2I communities, and the extent to which organizations have demonstrated capacity to deliver meaningful results with their partners on advancing LGBTQ2I rights internationally, will all be considered.
