Support to Civil Society and Civic Populations of Ukraine in the Time of War: A. PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Embassy Kyiv / EUR Bureau of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a program to foster the development of civil society and public engagement in Ukraine. Please follow all instructions below. Priority Region: Ukraine Program Objectives: The U.S. Embassy in Ukraine calls for proposals from Ukrainian NGOs to foster the development of civil society and public engagement in Ukraine. The grant competition supports both new and experienced human rights organizations in their efforts to sustain the work of civic organizations affected by the war time as well as civic populations of Ukraine in need. The U.S. Embassy welcomes proposals from all regions of Ukraine. However, the priority will be given to civil society organizations remaining in or relocated from regions previously besieged by Russian troops, or in temporary occupation. The project activities must fall into the following areas to be considered for funding in this thematic competition: Developing and sustaining a network of civil society groups throughout Ukraine; Providing institutional support for small and medium-size organizations; Tracking and recording war crimes; Providing assistance to victims of sexual harassment in areas occupied by Russia; Conducting employment training for deficit fields; Facilitating security and safety of NGOs and civic activists; Providing services to affected population (shelters and legal assistance for IDPs, relocation inside Ukraine, support to vulnerable groups, assistance to persons with disabilities, work with children, and psychological services) Promoting volunteer activities and building partnerships in Ukraine to raise funds and increase support for Ukraine. Other innovative ways address these issues will also be considered. PAS strongly encourages proposals to include new and effective communication tools and demonstrate a clear target audience. Proposals must identify the project's target audience; concrete and achievable goals and plans to measure progress against these goals; a realistic action plan; and a reasonable cost estimate. PAS strongly supports cooperation between different stakeholders and will give preference to projects that engage state and private institutions to implement the project and ensure its sustainability. Ten percent of grant funds may be allocated for administrative needs of the organization during the period of project implementation. Participants and Audiences: Ukrainian civic activists and initiative groups; human rights defenders; representatives of the vulnerable groups (including, but not limited by women, LGBT, people with disabilities, ethnic and religious minorities, IDPs); Ukrainian state institutions.
