National Integration and Tolerance in Georgia (NITG) Program: National Integration and Tolerance in Georgia (NITG) is a four-year, $2.7 million activity that will be implemented through a competitively awarded cooperative agreement to a Georgian NGO. The award shall be made in accordance with the Standard Provisions for Non-US Non-Governmental Grantees. Georgian NGOs will have to undergo an institutional review before an award is made. Source, Origin and Nationality codes for this procurement are 000 (US) and 110 (NIS). The Recipient will be responsible for ensuring achievement of the program objective to promote an increased sense of national unity among the citizens of Georgia through provision of support to the Government of Georgia in formation of its national integration strategy and action plan and empowering people and organizations to effectively discuss, debate, and resolve a range of issues related to building a cohesive multi-ethnic nation. Major outputs of the program will include the establishment of a broad-based national advisory committee; the development of a national strategy and action plan to promote integration and tolerance; a small grants program to further the objectives of the strategy; and the development of television programs. The principal counterparts in the Government of Georgia (GOG) will be the Ministry of Conflict Resolution and the Ministry of National Integration. The advisory committee will include other key GOG ministries (e.g. Economic Development, Education), the Ombudsmans office, local NGOs, civil society groups, as well as members from academia and the private sector. The project will contribute to USAIDs Strategic Objective 2.31 - more effective, responsive, and accountable governance - by helping to achieve an understanding of the value of diversity and the negative impacts of intolerance, distrust, and prejudice on economic and social development. GOG policies and local development programs will hopefully include the principles set forth in the national integration strategy. The strategy and action plan will provide a guide for the GOG, at both the national and local levels, in the formulation and implementation of policies and regional projects that will help achieve better protection of citizens rights (IR 2.31.2) and improve the capacity of people to engage government on important development and other issues (IR 2.31.3). Project interventions such as the development of talk shows and TV series will expose diversity issues and citizens concerns on non-Sate media (IR 2.31.1). To achieve desired results, project interventions will create new, and improve existing, mechanisms for the expression of peoples concerns, and increase national awareness of ethnic, religious, and minority rights among the citizens of Georgia.
