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.
