The United States Department of State, Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs, is seeking applications from qualified U.S.-based and non-U.S. based non-governmental/non-profit organizations (NGOs) for a Grant to implement a program entitled “Empowering Moldovan Civil Society to Monitor and Report on State Integrity and Anticorruption Activities, and to Engage and Educate the Public.” The authority for this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is found in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended.
Pursuant to 2 CFR 200.400g, it is U.S. Department of State policy that organizations awarded assistance instruments may not earn or keep any profit resulting from the Federal financial assistance unless explicitly authorized by the terms and conditions of the Federal award. No Grant awarded through this NOFO will authorize such profit. All direct and indirect reasonable, allocable, and allowable expenses, however, that are related to the agreement program and are in accordance with applicable cost standards (2 CFR 200 for US and overseas-based non-profit organizations, and education institutions) may be paid under the grant. NOTE: overseas-based nonprofit organizations are legally required to comply with the 2 CFR 200.
Subject to the availability of funds and pending Department of State management approvals, INL intends to issue an award in an amount not to exceed $400,000 in total funding. The U.S. Dollar amount will be funded from INL allocated funds, for an initial project period of two (2) years. INL may award up to three (3) additional years contingent on INL priorities, good performance of the recipient, Department of State management approvals, and funding availability. INL reserves the right to fund any number of applications or none of the applications submitted and will determine the resulting level of funding for each award(s).
Eligible organizations interested in submitting an application are encouraged to read this NOFO thoroughly to understand the type of project sought and the application submission requirements and evaluation process.
To be eligible for an award, the applicant must submit all required information and documents in its application through www.grants.gov including the requirements found in any attachments to this funding opportunity.
