Strengthening Government through Civil Society Engagement: EXECUTIVE SUMMARY The U.S. Embassy in Belmopan, Belize announces a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to strengthen democratic governance through capacity building for civil society organizations and civil servants through partnership in Belize.
