The Blood: Water Core Grant Partnership - Programmatic Alignment

In this section we would like to hear more about your partnership alignment with the Core Grant. We will ask some questions about the intended programmatic focus of the grant and previous experiences you have in this kind of work. This is not a proposal, rather some preliminary context setting of your organization's work that offers our team an understanding of the need you are responding to and your existing expertise in the areas of interest to determine the degree of alignment with the Core Partnership's parameters, as shared in the RFA guidelines.
The initiative area represents the central goal or majority focus of the grant work, however does not limit the scope of work conducted. A partner can work across all areas beyond their primary initiative area.
Within the above selected primary initiative area is there a focus within the Initiative Area that your programming will respond to? (optional)
