The U.S. Mission in Tunisia’s Public Affairs Office (PAO) has announced that funding is available through the Public Diplomacy Grant Program.

The objectives of the Public Diplomacy Grant Program are to:
• promote positive relations between Tunisia and the United States;
• reinforce shared values; and
• connect Tunisia’s emerging leaders to the American people through projects.

Utilize This Offer

The Public Affairs Office encourages applications from all sectors: committed and organized civil-society organizations, local representatives of civil society, think tanks, non-governmental organizations, cultural institutions, academic institutions, and individuals.

U.S. NGOs and individuals may apply, but preference is given to Tunisian NGOs or to partnerships that develop capacity with Tunisian NGOs.

All grantees must have a non-profit status.

They seek proposals for activities that engage geographically and demographically diverse audiences within Tunisia.

In order to be eligible for funding consideration, proposals must demonstrate significant U.S. content. U.S. content can include, for example, the participation of U.S. experts, the application or adaptation of U.S. models and best practices, or pedagogical materials related to American history, society, culture, government, or institutions.

For Fiscal Year 2022 all proposals submitted in response to this Annual Program Statement are required to include a contingency plan describing in detail:
i) how the proposed activity would be implemented in the event that COVID-related health restrictions are in place during the anticipated period of performance, and
ii) the applicant’s capacity to conduct programs virtually.

Projects generally must be completed within one year or less.

Projects range in value from USD$5,000 to USD$25,000.

The deadlines for application are:
Round 1: December 1, 2021.
Round 2: March 1, 2022.
Round 3: May 1, 2022.
