About the Organization

People Powered is a global hub for participatory democracy - the direct participation of community members in making the policy decisions that affect their lives.

We build the power and impact of organizations and leaders around the world who are building a more participatory democracy, through programs such as participatory budgeting, participatory policy-making, participatory planning, and citizen assemblies. We’re like a global union for participatory democracy workers.

About the Grant

Are you seeking support to launch or improve a participatory program to create new policies? Apply now to our accelerator programs to receive free training, one-on-one mentorship, and peer support!

Applications for the Climate Democracy Accelerator (CDA) and Democratic Innovations Accelerator (DIA) are now open. Both programs focus on building the capacity of government and civil society organizations to build equitable public participation in various important policymaking issues, such as health, education, climate, and more.

People Powered is looking for 15 government and civil society leaders to form a new cohort of the Climate Democracy Accelerator (CDA) program. The selected participants will receive funding, free access to online training, expert mentoring and advice, and international peer-learning opportunities to develop a project to launch a climate-focused participatory program.

CDA is a six-month, practice-oriented training and support program that prepares participants to plan and implement an inclusive and participatory process for a just climate transition. Participants from different parts of the world will develop a project to implement a climate-focused participatory program that addresses the needs and voices of local communities. Selected applicants will have access to a dedicated mentor to guide the development of their program, along with

  • Step-by-step resources such as the  Participation Playbook , our interactive online tool for designing participatory programs.
  • Practice-oriented live sessions and online courses.
  • A 10,000 USD implementation grant.
  • The opportunity to apply for an additional 20,000 USD award for the best project developed by program participants.


  • Government officials, staff members and policymakers who want to launch a participatory program for making just climate-related decisions. Please note: Government institutions applying must have a partnership with a civil society organization/non-governmental organization, as the grant recipient must be a non-governmental entity.
  • Civil society organization staff members and/or climate advocates who want to implement a participatory program focused on climate in partnership with a government institution. Please note: Civil society organizations applying must work in partnership with a government institution, as they must follow up with the implementation of the action plan.

Organizations should nominate a lead participant with professional proficiency in at least one of the following languages: English, French, Portuguese or Spanish. Applications from organizations or governments based in G20 countries are encouraged, especially from Brazil, India, Mexico, South Africa and Indonesia. People Powered or Open Government Partnership members will be prioritized.

People Powered cannot give funds to volunteer groups or recently incorporated civil society organizations through this program. To receive funding, your organization needs to

  • Demonstrate at least one full year of operations and successful fundraising to support such operations prior to being short-listed for the program.
  • Have paid staff as well as a board of directors or advisory committee.
  • Be registered as a non-profit organization in the country of operations.
