Job Creation for At Risk Neighborhoods: The Embassy of the United States of America in Belmopan invites organizations to submit proposals to advance the Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI) goal of strengthening citizen security. The proposal will confront the root causes of violence and crime in a creative and effective way and seek to create positive cultural and social conditions, which are the foundations of a peaceful and orderly society. Root causes in Belize include, but are not limited to, the lack of economic development, the lack of skills and/or tradecraft, the lack of conflict resolution skills, and/or the lack of opportunity for youth. Marginalized youth are empowered when given a voice and opportunities. Equipping marginalized youth and their communities with economic opportunities and/or business training can help them reach their true potential as entrepreneurs and improve citizen security. The Embassy plans to award a total of $500,000 USD for a project period of one to two years. Applicants may apply for amounts of $50,000 USD up to $200,000 USD. The U.S. Embassy may award up to ten grants which do not exceed the total of $500,000 USD.
