The U.S. Mission to Moldova has announced the Balti America House Program to support U.S. public diplomacy in Moldova by creating a welcoming, technology-forward space that fosters open discussion and debate, builds cultural bridges to deepen communication on key issues, provides opportunities for professional and personal skill-building, and sparks creativity, innovation, and collaboration around shared Moldovan and U.S. values.
The recipient organization will be responsible for staffing and operating America House Balti in close cooperation with the Public Affairs Section of the U.S. Embassy.
The America House Balti is one of 650 American Spaces supported by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) at the U.S. Department of State. American Spaces exemplify the U.S. commitment to a core tenet of democracy: the citizen’s right to free access to information. The America House Balti also supports the foundation of public diplomacy by creating a place for in-person engagement with Moldovan audiences. Embassy personnel, official visitors, and implementing partners regularly connect with Moldovans, especially young leaders and young professionals, to inspire dialogue on issues that matter most to U.S.-Moldovan relations.
- The U.S. Embassy will consider awarding one grant of up to $75,000.
- Applications may be submitted by Moldovan or U.S. public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 USC 501(c)(3).
- Applicants must be able to demonstrate experience working in Moldova and should have a legally registered local office to provide program oversight. The applicant organization must be able to demonstrate the ability to administer all components of the program as outlined in this solicitation, and in cooperation with the U.S. Embassy in Chisinau.
- Third country organizations and individuals are not eligible.
