U.S. Department of State, Bureau of DRL: West Africa Atrocities Prevention Project

Deadline: 26 April 2019

The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor (DRL) has announced an open competition for organizations interested in submitting applications for projects that aim to prevent atrocities in either Mali, Cameroon or Cote d’Ivoire.

Projects should partner with local organizations to improve civilian security and strengthen community resilience with the goal of preventing atrocities in countries vulnerable to extremist and communal violence.

Possible program activities may include: supporting the creation and local management of a communication and/or early warning system to share verified information, including but not limited to reports of violence, securely, quickly, and effectively in order to dispel rumors and activate protection mechanisms; training for community leaders to engage effectively with local security actors and increase community-government collaboration to promote civilian security; and promoting reconciliation and inter-communal dialogues in areas affected by ethnic conflict.

DRL is uniquely placed to promote democracy, protect human rights and international religious freedom, and advance labor rights globally through both policy and programming. Projects should aim to have impact that leads to democratic reforms, and should have the potential for sustainability beyond DRL resources. DRL’ s preference is to avoid duplicating past efforts by supporting new and creative approaches.

Funding Information

  • Primary organizations may submit up to three (3) applications – one for each country – in response to the NOFO but should not submit multiple applications for one country.
  • Estimated Total Program Funding: $880,000
  • Award Ceiling: $880,000
  • Award Floor: $880,000
  • Period of Performance:18-24 months

Eligible Applicants

  • DRL welcomes applications from U.S.-based and foreign-based non-profit organizations/non-government 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.
  • Applications submitted by for-profit entities may be subject to additional review following the panel selection process. Additionally, the Department of State prohibits profit to for-profit or commercial organizations under its assistance awards. Profit is defined as any amount in excess of allowable direct and indirect costs. The allowability of costs incurred by commercial organizations is determined in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) at 48 CFR 30, Cost Accounting Standards Administration, and 48 CFR 31 Contract Cost Principles and Procedures.
