II. Background Information
The Democracy Commission Small Grants Program was initiated in 1994 as a flexible mechanism to enable American embassies to support initiatives that contribute to more open and competitive political and economic systems and the protection of human rights.
The Democracy Commission Grants Program has been implemented in Moldova since 1996, providing support to Moldovan NGOs and mass media to carry out projects throughout Moldova.
III. Program Objectives:
Democracy Commission grants support a wide range of democratic and market economy themes. However, this call for proposals will focus on: restoring confidence in Moldova’s European path by communicating the benefits and results of this trajectory and bridging divides in society by promoting unity, civic engagement, and grassroots demand for accountable governance.
Grants may not be used for partisan political activity.
Applicants are encouraged to develop partnerships with relevant stakeholders, including the public and/or private sectors as well as local organizations, where applicable.
In identifying the specific target populations, proposals must demonstrate a commitment towards the support and inclusion of marginalized communities (including disability status, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, whether they live in rural or urban settings, etc.).
