General Guidelines

  • Non-governmental organizations may submit proposals for up to USD $10,000. Priority is given to grants that advance democratic practices, including development of civil society; foster freedom of information and independent media; support NGO capacity building; advance rule of law and judicial reform; promote civic education; prioritize human rights; programs that address maritime security or cyber-security, and advocate for equal rights for minorities or women. Grants focused on environmental and health issues will also be considered. Grants that engage youth and have a U.S. component are encouraged.
  • Grants CANNOT be made to individuals, but ONLY to non-governmental organizations that demonstrate long-term sustainability beyond the proposed program activity. State-Owned Enterprises may submit proposals for projects related to the thematic areas mentioned above. Third-country organizations and individuals are not eligible.
  • Priority will be given to proposals with innovative project ideas. Grants will not normally be approved for multi-year projects, but past recipients of Embassy Apia Small Grants will be considered for new one-year projects.
  • The proposal should disclose any other partnering organizations or co-funding for the project/program.
  • Small grant proposals may include modest administrative expenses, including honoraria/partial salaries of grant implementers, but only when they are directly linked to the conduct of the specific grant program. General operating expenses, long-term infrastructure costs and undefined miscellaneous or “overhead” expenses are not acceptable.
  • Grant funds may not be used to fund travel to international conferences, nor may they be used primarily for food and drink expenses.
  • Grant funds may be used to train trainers, but they may not be used to provide direct social services.
  • Grant funds may be used for seminars and workshops, but proposals must describe the expected audience, content, and timeframe, and justify the activity in terms of outcome and benefits.
  • Grant funds may be used for the publication of materials, but proposals must describe the audience, content and means of distribution.
