Building the Capacity of Civil Society to Combat Child Labor and Forced Labor and Improve Working Conditions: NOTE: This is a Notice of Intent. An announcement is not related to this notice. We are not accepting applications at this time. Subject to the availability of funds, USDOL's Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) intends to award, through a competitive process, up to three cooperative agreements to organizations to improve the capacity of civil society to better understand and address child labor and/or forced labor abuses and promote acceptable conditions of work in a sector and/or supply chain. One of the three cooperative agreements will be implemented in one of the following countries in the Latin America/Caribbean region: Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, or Nicaragua focused on the coffee sector. The other two cooperative agreements will be implemented in a country and sector and/or supply chain to be proposed by applicants. Applicants must propose a country covered in the DOL's Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor in accordance with the Trade and Development Act of 2000 or on the List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor as mandated by Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2005. Proposals for working in the fisheries sector in the Asia-Pacific region (https://www.state.gov/p/eap/ci/index.htm) will not be considered as ILAB has published a separate notice of intent to fund such a project (https://www.grants.gov/web/grants/view-opportunity.html?oppId=296162). The project will achieve the following outcomes: (1) Improved capacity of civil society to identify and document accurate, independent, and objective information on the nature and scope of child labor and/or forced labor, and violations of acceptable conditions of work in a sector and/or supply chain; (2) Improved capacity of civil society to raise awareness for the protection of workers from child labor and/or forced labor abuses, and violations of acceptable conditions of work; and (3) Improved capacity of civil society to implement initiatives to address child labor and/or forced labor and violations of acceptable conditions of work, including facilitated access to grievance mechanisms and/or remedy for victims of labor exploitation. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA)'s Office of Grants Management anticipates publishing the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) before September 30, 2017 (subject to change). Please refer to: http://www.dol.gov/ilab/grants/ and http://www.dol.gov/ilab/grants/SGAguidelines.htm for general guidelines and examples of previous cooperative agreement applications. This notice does not include an FOA or any attachments. It only constitutes a notice of USDOL's intent to publish an FOA at a later date. Interested applicants are encouraged to monitor www.grants.gov for the FOA because, if an FOA is published, grants.gov is the method by which the FOA will be made available to the public. No email or paper copies of any FOA will be provided.
