Harakat - Afghanistan Investment Climate Facility Organization
Funding Procedure
 
How does the funding process work?

There are two stages in applying for funding from Harakat - Afghanistan Investment Climate Facility Organization.

First, you need to submit a Concept Note. Guidance notes are provided to help applicants answer each question fully. The fully completed Concept Note form must not exceed 4 pages.

If Harakat thinks the Concept Note is a good fit with our strategic priorities and the selection criteria, you will be invited to submit a more detailed proposal (the second stage). Not everyone will be successful. It may be that your idea is not suitable for this type of fund.

Please note that an accepted Concept Note does not mean your project will be funded.

If you are selected to submit a full proposal, Harakat’s Proposal Development Unit will be available to help you in preparing it.

Once Harakat has made its decision, a final due diligence will be conducted on all the successful applicants. Each applicant will then sign a contract with Harakat. Funds will be dispersed during the project as pre-agreed milestones are achieved.

There will be a number of grant-awarding rounds each year from 2008 to 2013.
 
How do I apply?

Complete the Concept Note in accordance with the instructions and submit an electronic version to proposal.application@harakat.af . If possible, deliver a hardcopy to the Harakat office. Applications will be accepted in English, Dari or Pashto.

If you are invited to submit a full proposal, you can also submit this through proposal.applications@harakat.af
 
Who can apply?

Our priority is Afghan-registered businesses or government departments, but there is no restriction on nationality for applications.

All applications relating to the core business of the Government of Afghanistan must have the Government as the primary applicant, but can be supported by third parties.

Please email proposal.applications@harakat.af or telephone us +93 (0) 752 044 000 at any time if you need support.
 
Harakat’s Golden Rules

All projects considered for funding will obey the following “golden rules”

All projects considered for funding will obey the following “golden rules”. The Harakat Project Unit must comply with the following rules for the selection of projects to be put to the Project Subcommittee.

  • Fair competition – There should be no undue advantage for a particular organisation in the implementation of the proposal.
  • Value for money – The proposal should demonstrate this.
  • Applicants – Applications relating to the core business of Government must have the Government as a primary applicant, but can be supported by third parties.
  • Ownership – Organisations identified to take proactively-generated ideas forward must demonstrate ownership of the idea, and sufficient capacity to ensure effective implementation and institutional capacity.
  • Infrastructure – Harakat is not a lending facility or equity fund and will not directly fund infrastructure.
  • Capital investments – Harakat will not provide funds for direct capital investments.
  • Beyond Kabul – Harakat must demonstrate that it is not Kabul-centric, through provincial engagement and outreach.
 The assessment of these principles will be on a case-by-case basis, but there should be evidence that validates these conclusions.
