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.
