Election grant program management-2006-2009

In November 2006, CDPF launched another activity in grant-making area: administration and technical support for Parliamentary Election grants distributed by Counterpart International Armenia and funded by USAID Armenia.

Under this agreement, CDPF administered 11 nation-wide election projects that were covering election-related researches, awareness and monitoring campaigns. Based on the high performance presented by the CDPF, in October 2007 the project was extended until May 2008, covering 10 Presidential Election grants implemented by 15 organizations. In 2008, we administered the Local Self-Governance Election grants run by 4 grantee organizations, and in 2009 we administered awareness-raising and monitoring campaigns for the Yerevan Municipality Elections.

The overall budget of the project was 35’000USD.
