This notice is subject to the availability of funding. A. ELIGIBILITY INFORMATION Public Diplomacy’s primary audiences include non-governmental organizations (NGOs), associations, foundations, think tanks, national and regional media, cultural and educational leaders; underserved communities; disadvantaged populations; next generation leaders (e.g., innovators, digital influencers, content creators); and academic institutions. We encourage organizations working with special needs communities (visual, hearing, or speech impaired, physical disability, etc.) to apply. Awards to individuals will also be considered on a case-by-case basis. We encourage proposals for activities that engage geographically and demographically diverse audiences within Morocco. While U.S. NGOs and individuals may apply, preference is given to Moroccan NGOs or to partnerships that develop capacity with Moroccan NGOs. All grantees must provide proof of their non-profit status if shortlisted for Phase II submission. U.S. Mission Morocco encourages not only diverse applicants to apply to our grants programs but would also like to see diverse target audiences and trainers. Diversity can be defined by different geographic regions, ethnicities, religious orientations, gender, physical disabilities including visual, hearing, speech, and other physically handicapping conditions, etc. B. OBJECTIVES AND PROJECT OUTCOMES: The objectives of the Public Diplomacy Grant Program are to promote positive relations between Morocco and the United States; to reinforce shared values; and to connect Morocco’s emerging leaders to the American people. We fund projects that: · Promote entrepreneurship and economic inclusion. · Promote engagement between local government and Moroccan NGOs/Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). · Are oriented towards climate change mitigation. All projects should have a direct connection to community engagement and a diversity and inclusion component. C. U.S. CONTENT To be eligible for funding consideration, your Concept Paper must have U.S. content which can include: the participation of U.S. experts, the application or adaptation of U.S. models and best practices, or pedagogical materials related to American history, society, culture, government, or institutions. Please do not submit proposals without U.S. content; they will not be considered for funding. Inviting U.S. Experts The Public Affairs Section will also support inviting U.S. citizen experts to Morocco in support of the above Program objectives. The travel costs may include economy class airfare of a U.S. flag carrier, stipend for meals, daily honorarium, lodging, and local transportation. The request should include a proposed daily schedule for the expert (minimum of two program days excluding travel time). If participation in a conference is expected, please provide its description (organizer, topics, goals and objectives, audience, other sponsors and other expected speakers and participants). When possible, Public Affairs prefers to provide support to U.S. experts who are available to participate in multiple events. The Public Affairs Office is willing to work with grantees to identify additional programming opportunities for U.S. experts traveling to Morocco. D.
