ADVANCE NOTICE-US-Russia Civil Society Partnership Program: This is an advance notice of a Request for Applications which USAID/Russia intends to announce in February 2011 on This notice is being published to advise potential applicants of this upcoming opportunity which was not included in USAID/Russia's 2011 Business Forecast.USAID/Russia anticipates issuing a Request for Applications (RFA) for a U.S. or Russian civil society organization working with a coalition of U.S. and Russian partners engaged in supporting civil society to implement a three-year program to increase and intensify peer-to-peer relationships between US and Russian civil society groups (NGOs, non-profits, universities, foundations, and, where appropriate, the private sector) which share common objectives in addressing major societal challenges. The US-Russia Civil Society Partners Program will establish a mechanism to facilitate sustained dialog and collaboration between civil society groups in both countries. The main project goals are to:- Convene an annual conference of civil society experts as well as working meetings on specific civil society topics, beginning in June 2011 in St. Petersburg. Annual meetings will be held in the U.S. or Russia; working meetings may be held in either of the two countries or in third countries, with locations to be determined in coordination with program participants.- Establish a Steering Committee with representatives of a broad spectrum of recognized experts from the civil society communities of both nations, in order to establish program goals (including for subgrant activities), monitor progress, hold meetings, conduct exchanges and support ongoing dialog.- Conduct a competitive grant program/programs to support innovation, collaboration, and the exchange of best practices among groups working in similar issue areas.- Identify non-USG sources of funding (US or Russian private sector, foundation, university, or other funding) in order to provide an increasing level of non-governmental financial support for the program, with the goal of progressively increasing non-USG funding over time. Over the life of the program, the share of the non-USG contribution is expected to increase substantially. By the end of the program, 75% of funding is expected to be from non-USG sources. - Proposed areas of work for participating civil society organizations include: Anti-Corruption, Child Protection, Community Development, Education and Youth, Environmental Protection, Gender Equity, Higher Education, Human Rights and Law, Media & Access to Information, Public Health and Open Government.
