Haiti - USA : Grant program, call for proposals
Purpose of Small Grants: PD Haiti invites proposals for programs that support academic mobility between our two countries; the development of civil society; the empowerment of youth in realizing their potential through education, innovation and entrepreneurship; the democratic ideals of freedom of expression and of the press, and intellectual freedom; teaching of the English language; empowerment and security of women and girls; and strengthening cultural ties between the U.S. and Haiti. All programs must include an American cultural element, or connection with American expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives.
Examples of PD Small Grants Program programs include, but are not limited to :
Participants and Audiences:
In deciding which projects to support, the Embassy will consider the full range and diversity of Haitian and U.S. organizations. The Public Diplomacy Section will also seek to target geographically and demographically diverse audiences throughout the ten Departments in Haiti.
American and Haitian individuals and institutions with a proven track record of executing superior cultural and educational events and programs will receive preference. New grantees will generally be given priority over previous grantees. Preference will be given to proposals that demonstrate the long-term sustainability of the project and that include some form of cost-sharing with the partner institution(s) and private-sector engagement that will allow the programs to become sustainable in future iterations. Strong proposals will include impact assessment, in addition to results/evaluation, at the conclusion of the grant period.
