Development Cooperation Partnership (DCP), formerly known as Emerging Donors Challenge Program (EDCP), Round 8: A. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Department of State Office of the Assistance Coordinator for Europe and Eurasia (EUR/ACE) has launched the eighth round of the DCP to continue building U.S. foreign assistance partnerships with 11 partner donor governments in Central and Eastern Europe: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia. Through the DCP initiative, the United States builds partnerships with these partner donor countries by co-financing joint foreign assistance activities aimed at sharing the PDGs' transition and EU integration experiences with Ukraine. EUR/ACE has identified the following priority objectives for DCP funding: Energy and Cyber Security Access to Western Markets Strengthening Resilience through Democratic Consolidation Tackling the Secondary Impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic and Preparing for Future Outbreaks of Infectious Diseases Participants and Audiences: A typical assistance activity will likely be a joint project, implemented with one emerging donor partner in Ukraine, for which the U.S. cost share will be no more than 50 percent. No single U.S. contribution may exceed $100,000. Multiple PDG partners may contribute to the same activities, and implementing organizations may include government entities, research institutions, and/or nongovernmental organizations. Most DCP activities will likely entail co-financing new projects. Embassy, however, may consider other means of collaboration, such as co-financing existing U.S. or PDG assistance activities or enhancing ongoing U.S. assistance activities by facilitating the participation of PDG officials or PDG-identified experts. Selected activities should include a significant amount of content from institutions, advisors or other sources of knowledge in the PDG countries in order to meet the DCP objective of fostering the transfer of transition experience to the beneficiary country.
