Promoting Increased Civic Engagement in the Lead-Up to Elections in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC): The U.S. Department of State Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) announces
an open competition for organizations interested in submitting applications for programs that will
increase nonviolent civic engagement in the lead-up to the planned November 2016 elections in
the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
DRL’s goal is to increase citizen participation, especially of youth and women, in the lead-up to
the planned November 2016 elections, through targeted support to Congolese civil society
organizations (CSOs), including church organizations.
DRL seeks proposals for activities that may include, but are not limited to: 1) subgrants to and
partnerships with key CSOs that have access to audiences in the Kivus, the Kasais, and the
former Katanga province; 2) creating new or strengthening existing networks of like-minded
CSOs to improve their communication and coordination around elections, including election
observation, ideally at a national level; 3) innovative approaches to educating vulnerable
populations about their rights as voters, and; 4) training on effective advocacy methods for
improved outreach to the Congolese government (national and provincial).

DRL welcomes applications from United States-based and foreign-based non-profit
organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and public international organizations;
private, public, or state institutions of higher education; and for-profit organizations or
businesses. DRL’s preference is to work with non-profit entities; however, there may be
occasions when a for-profit entity is best suited.
For-profit entities should be aware that their applications may be subject to additional review
following the panel selection process, and that the Department of State generally prohibits profit
under its assistance awards to for-profit or commercial organizations. Profit is defined as any
amount in excess of allowable direct and indirect costs. The allowability of costs incurred by
commercial organizations is determined in accordance with the provisions of the Federal
Acquisition Regulation (FAR) at 48 CFR 30, Cost Accounting Standards Administration, and 48
CFR 31 Contract Cost Principles and Procedures. Project income earned by the recipient must
be deducted from the total project allowable cost in determining the net allowable costs on which
the federal share of costs is based.
