Governance and Civil Society in Syria: The Office of Assistance Coordination (NEA/AC) in the Bureau of Near Eastern Affairs aims to strengthen the unity and legitimacy of inclusive, representative, moderate opposition elements and institutions in Syria's liberated territories by building their capacity to govern, serve and support their communities, promote security and stability, counter intolerance and extremism and serve as responsible advocates for their communities in future national-level political transition dialogues. This announcement seeks to continue the support and development of civil society groups and local and provincial councils in support of the U.S. Government's overall goal for political transition assistance in Syria: a negotiated political transition to a rights respecting, credible government that serves and represents all Syrians. Applicants are encouraged to work with local partner organizations in Turkey, Jordan and Syria to aid in implementation of activities, as well as beneficiary selection and follow-on activities; potential partners should be named in the application.
