The U.S. Embassy in Serbia is seeking applications for its Democracy Commission Small Grants Program to award grants for specific projects that support democracy and the development of democratic institutions in the Republic of Serbia.

Grants will be primarily awarded to non-governmental (NGOs) and other non-profit organizations with projects in the regions outside of Belgrade.

Funding Information

The maximum amount of a grant is $24,000, but smaller grants are preferred in order to support more projects.

Priority Areas

The following list represents the U.S. Embassy’s priority areas

  • Rule of law, legal reform, and transparency in government
  • Anti-corruption awareness campaigns and training
  • Further development of a market economy
  • Conflict resolution and tolerance
  • Project proposals should include all of the information requested in the Application Form. Proposals will not be considered until all information is received.
  • Amounts in the project budget have to be in U.S. dollars.
  • Project budget should not include any expenses incurred outside of the territory of the Republic of Serbia, such as international transportation, purchase of goods or payment of services in other countries, etc.

  • The project budget can include bank charges.
