Contributions from CEDTAP can vary from $3,000 up to a maximum of $20,000. To qualify for CEDTAP support, an organization must demonstrate that it can commit to making a cash contribution of 20% towards the technical assistance fees.

To qualify for CEDTAP support, an organization must:

  • Have a clear vision of how the initiative will contribute to the social and economic well-being of the community.
  • Demonstrate that there is acceptance and support from the broader community.
  • Demonstrate the ability to generate tangible results from the technical assistance received.
  • Commit to making a cash contribution of approximately 20% of the technical assistance fees.
  • Agree to administer the assignment. This includes planning and implementing the technical assistance assignment, managing relations with the technical assistance provider, managing the funds allocated to the initiative, and providing CEDTAP with reports that account for the use of the funds granted.
  • Agree to document and share lessons learned throughout the initiative.

Groups emerging in the CED sector may also be asked to participate in a needs assessment that will examine the long-term vision of the organization, and identify strengths, weaknesses and technical assistance needs.
