Time-line for submissions and review 
Concept notes may be submitted throughout the year; however, to ensure a selection process 
that is competitive and where the best human security projects can be funded, in 2014 the 
United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security (UNTFHS) will be reviewing applications 
during two periods: from 1 to 30 April 2014, and 2 to 30 September 2014. 
The deadline for the submission of concept notes to be considered during the April review 
period is 31 March 2014, 11:59pm New York time. 
The deadline for the submission of concept notes to be considered during the September 
review period is 1 September 2014, 11:59pm New York time 
The schedule for the review of applications received after 2 September 2014 will be notified 
in due course. 
Those who plan to apply are requested to visit the UNTFHS website in order to familiarize 
themselves with the necessary tools for designing human security projects and the 
requirements of the UNTFHS and its Guidelines: 
All applications must be submitted electronically to 
Appraisal and selection process 
As indicated in the UNTFHS Guidelines, the project development process is broken down 
into two distinct phases: (i) concept note and (ii) project proposal. The Guidelines provide 
detailed information on the requirements for each of these phases. 
(a) The Human Security Unit (HSU) will acknowledge receipt of applications through a 
confirmation email. 
(b) Within one month after the review period (i.e., by 1 May 2014 and 1 October 2014), 
the HSU will inform the applying organisation(s) of the outcome of the initial review 
of concept notes. Should additional information be required, the HSU will 
communicate directly with the applying organisation(s). 
(c) If the final outcome of the review process is positive, the HSU will encourage the 
applying organisation(s) to formulate and submit a full project proposal to the HSU. 
(d) Proposals that satisfy the review process will be submitted to the Executive Office of 
the Secretary-General for further review and approval. 
(e) Upon approval from the Executive Office of the Secretary-General, the Controller of 
the United Nations will authorise expenditures in accordance with the UN Financial 
Regulations and Rules.
