Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 1 September 2018

The U.S. Embassy’s American Center Jerusalem (ACJ) of the U.S. Department of State has announced that funding for grants is available through the ACJ Grants Program.

ACJ grants focus on projects that clearly support Embassy Tel Aviv mission priorities:

  • Encourage Israeli and Palestinian cooperation that contributes to the search for a lasting peace
  • Deepen U.S.-Israel economic ties
  • Strengthen the bilateral security relationship
  • Foster Israeli understanding of U.S. policy.

Priority Program Areas

  • Programs that help create conditions more conducive to a peace agreement between Israelis and Palestinians.
  • Programs that improve connections between Israeli and Palestinian (West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza) communities
  • Programs that foster entrepreneurship and economic development/opportunity for disenfranchised communities.
  • Programs that promote greater understanding of American policy, best practices and culture among Israeli audiences.
  • Programs that improve instruction and student academic achievement in English language proficiency and/or science, technology, environment, architecture/art and math subjects (STEAM).
  • Programs that improve connections between Israel’s various minority communities and/or between peripheral communities and the center and/or that strengthen social cohesion and reconciliation among diverse communities of Israeli society.
  • Programs that engage alumni of S. Embassy Tel Aviv-sponsored cultural exchange programs.
  • Programs that promote women’s empowerment and gender inclusivity, especially linked to the four main goals stated above.
  • Programs that increase public understanding of the U.S.-Israel security

Funding Information

  • Award amounts: awards may range from a minimum of $500.00 to a maximum of $10,000
  • Total available funding: $75,000, contingent upon availability of funds
  • Length of performance period: depending on the needs of the project, performance periods may be as short as one day but up to as long as 24 months

    • Registered not-for-profit organizations, including think tanks and civil society/non-governmental organizations with programming experience
