U.S. Embassy in Jordan announces Small Grants Annual Program Statement

Deadline: 15 July 2019

The U.S. Embassy in Jordan’s Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce that funding is available through its Public Diplomacy Small Grants Program.

Priorities

Public Affairs Section small grants are focused on projects that clearly support their mission priorities. The Small Grants Program will focus on the below Strategic Priorities:

  • Encourage young people to take action in planning out their studies and identifying employment opportunities.
  • Inspire young people to take part in civil society and become more involved in their communities.
  • Support broad-based, inclusive economic growth in Jordan.

Target Audiences

Proposals should describe both the primary and secondary audiences for the program, including numbers anticipated to be reached. Primary audiences are those who will participate directly in the program, while secondary audiences are those who will be reached by the project’s primary audiences, as a result of their participation. For example, in a teacher training program, the primary audience would be the teachers who will be trained, while the secondary audience would be their students. Audiences who are considered a priority for grants funded under this APS are:

  • Jordanian youth under age 30
  • Areas outside the Greater Amman Municipality

Funding Information

Award amounts up to $10,000. Awards larger than $10,000 may be possible but are very rare.
