The U.S. Mission to Jerusalem has posted a grant opportunity titled "U.S. Public Diplomacy Palestinian Peacebuilding Program". This grant aims to partner with Palestinian, American, and International non-profit organizations to implement activities that advance the goals of the U.S. Office of Palestinian Affairs (U.S.OPA) and promote a comprehensive and lasting peace through a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The program seeks to develop a vibrant and responsive Palestinian civil society, private sector, and governing institutions. The grant will prioritize projects in the regions of Jerusalem, West Bank, and Gaza, or a combination of two or three of them. The program objectives include increasing the knowledge of peacebuilding, nonviolent activism, social change, negotiation, debate skills, conflict resolution, and civic education among young Palestinians aged 14-35. It also aims to encourage the imagination of alternatives to occupation, violence, despair, or apathy, as well as provide training and capacity building for civil society leaders to continue working with youth on nonviolent activism and peacebuilding. Additionally, the grant supports the creation of discussion groups among youth about the two-state solution and provides training for social media influencers on this topic. Proposals must include a substantial monitoring and evaluation component to contribute to research in the field of peacebuilding. Special consideration will be given to proposals that incorporate cooperation between two civil society organizations, involve alumni of U.S. government programs and exchanges, and include grassroots elements that support underserved communities. The grant does not require an Israeli element or bringing Israelis and Palestinians together, but it must contribute to building the conditions and laying the groundwork for a negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. The grant opportunity is open to Palestinian, American, and International not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/non-governmental organizations. The deadline for applications is July 6, 2024. For more information and to apply, visit the U.S. Office of Palestinian Affairs Official Grants and Funding Opportunities webpage.
