Frequent Questions

What are the Letters of Commitment and what information should be included in them?

Letters of Commitment represent agreements between the applicant organization and its partners, which outline the responsibilities of key persons involved in carrying out the proposed project. Whether an applicant organization uses the title “Letter of Commitment” or another title, will not reflect negatively upon the organization’s application package. However, each “agreement” must include the following information to be valid:

  • Names of the parties executing the agreement
  • Roles and responsibilities of each signer
  • Location of the project (e.g., urban, rural, river valley)
  • Target audience (e.g., ethnic focus, low-income)
  • Purpose of the agreement
  • Duration of the agreement
  • Signatures of the parties to the agreement (applicant and one partner per agreement)
