U.S. Embassy in Central African Republic: PEACE is PROFITABLE Grants Competition

Deadline: 8 August 2018

The United States Embassy in Bangui has announced a call for proposals to support Central Africans sustainably managing natural resources.

The project should reach a broad Central African audience in a way that resonates. This proposal seeks to inform and engage Central Africans in managing CAR’s natural resources to benefit citizens rather than armed groups.

The Projects

  • The project may be creative, using art (e.g., graphic novel, film, painting, radio/theater) to engage and inform audiences.
  • The project must be clearly focused on sustainable natural resource management in the CAR context.
  • The project should reach a large C.A.R. audience, particularly those that are illiterate or have limited education
  • The project should engage Central Africans in its production in order to ensure that the project resonates with Central Africans caught in the conflict
  • Projects that have a clear alignment between budget and project will have higher merit

Funding Information

Expected size of individual awards:  $2,000 to $10,000

Eligible Applicants

  • PAS encourages applications from organizations located in the Central African Republic, the United States, or abroad including:
    • Registered not-for-profit and civil society/non-governmental organizations with at least one year of experience;
