An Introduction to the US Embassy Grants- How to Track and Apply
Trainer: Chidinma Zik-Ikeorha
Study time: 45 Minutes
The United States offers a great resource of financial and technical support to initiatives willing to strengthen civil society. Embassies and Consulates worldwide advertise specific calls for proposals to assist local NGOs working on issues of conflict stabilization, democracy and human rights, economic growth, and security. These grant programs are not open all throughout the year so NGOs need to keep a close watch on the announcements and the deadlines. You need to keep monitoring the funding opportunities at the website of the US embassy in your country. The guide offers assistance to NGOs with information on how to keep track of grants on US Embassy websites of their countries as well as how to apply.
