Themes

  • Grants should support initiatives such as:
    • Promotion of civil society.
    • Free flow of information (including support for independent media, except for direct support for development of content of any particular media outlet).
    • Transparency in government.
    • Public education and advocacy.
    • Rule of law and legal reform.
    • Conflict resolution.
    • Human rights.
    • Civic education.
    • STEM education.
    • Market economy.
    • Anti-trafficking and anti-corruption awareness campaigns and training.
    • Ethnic, minority, and women’s equality.
    • American art and culture (the project should include an educational or public engagement component).
  • Grants may not be used for partisan political activity. However, public education, get-out-the-vote, election monitoring and other non-partisan election activities may be supported.
  • Grants may be used to promote non-discrimination and tolerance for disadvantaged minorities, but should not be used to promote the particular agenda of a specific group, practice, or lifestyle over any other. Close attention should be given to applications addressing tolerance and human rights (focusing on race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation), volunteerism, and trafficking in persons. Before awarding any grant related to these issues, Embassy staff must brief grantees on the distinction between support for human rights and their inability to advocate for a specific lifestyle or the views of any specific organization.
  • Grants cannot support any goals of religious nature.
  • Grants cannot support the creation of any media content or support journalist salaries.
  • Proposed projects should target primarily Latvian audiences.

Funding Information

  • No single grant may exceed $10,000 USD. Regardless of amounts requested, the average awarded amount per project is $1,000-3,000 USD.
