U.S. Department of State, Bureau of DRL: Combatting Gender-Based Violence in Morocco

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 28 February 2018

The Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) of the United States Department of State has announced an open competition entitled “Combatting Gender Based Violence in Morocco”.

DRL’s objective for this program is to enhance the ability of Moroccan government and civil society stakeholders engaging on GBV to advance survivor-centered protections. All proposals should include efforts that bring together key stakeholders, including justice and security sector actors, to promote effectiveness and accountability in gender-based violence prevention and response

Program Priorities

  • Develop and improve GBV reporting mechanisms and increase awareness of established procedures and mechanisms, including for security and justice sector stakeholders;
  • Support advocacy efforts to promote the adoption and effective implementation of comprehensive GBV legislation in line with international standards;
  • Support rights awareness and sensitization campaigns to change attitudes that stigmatize survivors of GBV and prevent survivors from accessing assistance and formally reporting crimes, including efforts engaging institutional service providers as well as men and boys;
  • Foster key stakeholder coordination and capacity building to promote the exchange of information and best practices in the implementation of GBV-related legislation, appropriately investigating gender-based violence cases, and supporting survivors.

Funding Information

  • Award Ceiling: $700,000
  • Award Floor: $250,000

Eligibility Criteria

  • DRL welcomes applications from U.S.-based and foreign-based non-profit organizations/nongovernment organizations (NGO) and public international organizations; private, public, or state institutions of higher education; and for-profit organizations or businesses.
  • DRL’s preference is to work with non-profit entities; however, there may be some occasions when a for-profit entity is best suited.
