The U.S. Embassy’s Public Affairs Section (PAS) Democracy Commission Small Grants Program invites Ukrainian NGOs to submit proposals that support the elimination of domestic and gender-based violence in Ukraine. This includes violence against LGBTI individuals.

The purpose of the grant competition is to support both experienced and new Ukrainian NGOs to address domestic and gender-based violence, particularly as the issue has worsened during COVID19.

Successful applicant organizations will create awareness about the issues of domestic and gender-based violence, create safe environments for victims to report abuses, and assist victims.

Proposals must identify the project’s target audience; concrete and achievable goals and plans to measure progress against these goals; a realistic action plan; and a reasonable cost estimate.

Utilize This Offer

Eligibility Criteria: Ukrainian non-governmental organizations.

PAS strongly supports cooperation between different stakeholders and will give preference to projects that engage state and private institutions to implement the project and ensure its sustainability.

Organizations should engage men to change attitudes.

Organizations with demonstrated success addressing domestic and gender-based violence will be prioritized.

Organizations that are new to this issue will be considered but should work with experienced partners.

PAS strongly encourages proposals to include new and effective communication tools and demonstrate a clear target audience. Due to COVID-19, direct personal contact between project implementers and beneficiaries should be limited.

Applicants should use online tools for training and meeting with beneficiaries; and visual tools such as billboards, posters, announcements with QR codes, video advertisements (print materials are discouraged).

Awards may range from USD$15,000 (award floor) to USD$50,000 (award ceiling).

Closing Date for Applications: March 09, 2021.
