Applications Open for U.S. Mission to Canada Public Affairs Grants Program!

Deadline: 30 August 2018

The U.S. Mission to Canada Public Affairs Section (PAS) has announced that funding is available through the Public Affairs Grants program to support activities that promote U.S.-Canada bilateral relations in the following four priority areas:

  • Increase entrepreneurship and economic prosperity; maximize economic growth and bilateral trade, tourism, and investment, especially among youth and underserved communities;
  • Enhance civil society’s ability to respond to transnational crime, natural disasters, or terrorist threats;
  • Enhance bilateral partnerships in promotion of rule of law assistance, development, and cooperation in the Americas and beyond;
  • Promote cultural exchange and enhance understanding of our shared history, traditions, and values.

The goal of these grants is to enhance relations between Canadian and U.S. organizations and people in the priority areas described, and/or to inform Canadian audiences about the United States, its culture, society, government, legal, economic and political systems, and values. To further these goals, grant proposals must include a specific focus on American content, which can include speakers who are experts in U.S. policy, academia, culture, and economics; the use of U.S. training models or materials; exchanges with U.S. institutions; or promotion of U.S. culture and art.
