Description

The U.S. Mission to Montenegro is offering the 2024 Democracy Commission Small Grants Program. This grant opportunity aims to support initiatives that contribute to open and competitive political systems and the protection of human rights. The program is seeking project proposals that focus on bolstering civil society and advancing tolerance, diversity, and inclusion within Montenegrin society. The priority areas for project proposals include the protection of human rights and promotion of tolerance, especially among youth; ethnic minority, LGBTQi, and gender equality; and women's empowerment in the political and economic sphere. Projects may include strategic policy engagements, advocacy, communication campaigns, capacity building trainings, workshops, cultural programming, and community initiatives. The grant program encourages proposals that target underserved communities, particularly in economically disadvantaged areas that have experienced out-migration. The total program funding is estimated at $320,000, with expected awards to be given to 8 projects. The award ceiling is $50,000, while the award floor is $25,000. The deadline for submission is April 29, 2024, and all application materials must be submitted via email.
