Haiti - USA : Grant program, call for proposals
The U.S. Embassy Haiti Public Diplomacy Section (PD) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program. This is an Annual Program Statement, outlining our funding priorities, the strategic themes we focus on, and the procedures for submitting requests for funding.

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 :

  • Academic and professional lectures, seminars and speaker programs;
  • Artistic and cultural workshops, joint performances and exhibitions;
  • Cultural heritage conservation and preservation programs;
  • Professional and academic exchanges and programs;
    Priority Program Areas:
  • Promoting political awareness and participation among the public and/or among youth
  • Promoting civic education and youth participation in civics, democratic processes, volunteerism, and community service
  • Combatting corruption
  • Promoting rule of law / effective administration in justice
  • Fostering: press freedom, independent media, professionalism in the media
  • Empowerment of women and youth
  • Promoting entrepreneurship and business development
  • Human rights and combatting trafficking in persons
  • Telling America’s story in Haiti
  • Celebrating Haitian and American cross cultural encounters in the arts

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.

Total Amount Available: $300,000
Maximum for Each Award: $ 23,000
Deadline for Applications: July 17, 2020
