U.S. Mission to Haiti: PAS Annual Program Statement Program

Deadline: 19 July 2019

The U.S. Embassy Haiti Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State has announced that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program for election outreach activities.

PAS Haiti invites proposals for programs that support political participation, women in politics, youth participation in elections, voter participation outreach, non-partisan voter guides and election reporting.  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 political participation.

Examples of PAS Election Outreach 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;
  • 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 voter education, non-partisan voter guides, election reporting, fact checkers
  • Empowerment of women and youth

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 Affairs 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.
