2014 Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) Local Grants Program in Jordan (Deadline extended)

U.S. Embassy Amman is considering new applications for MEPI local grants.

We are pleased to announce that the U.S. Embassy Amman Selection Committee will meet to evaluate MEPI local grants proposals in February, and will consider all proposals submitted by February 12, 2015.

This program supports the work of civil society organizations in Jordan in:

  • Promoting economic empowerment opportunities, especially for women and youth.
  • Supporting rights-based advocacy for the most vulnerable groups, including persons with disabilities; victims of trafficking; and women, children, and young people in underserved communities.
  • Promoting reform, inclusivity, and political engagement.

The Embassy is particularly interested in supporting CSOs and programs focused on communities outside Amman.

Proposals not targeting the areas listed above may also be considered on a case-by-case basis.

The grant period is generally up to one year. We may consider longer-term projects on a case-by-case basis.  Grant amounts range from $25,000 to $150,000.

Interested applicants, including non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society organizations (CSOs), should carefully read the full Annual Program Statement for MEPI’s Local Grants Program.

Applicants must use MEPI’s Local Grants Program Application Assistance Website to generate and fill their application forms.

Completed applications should be e-mailed to the following address:MEPIamman@state.gov No Later than Thursday, February 12, 2015

We look forward to receiving your proposals. Kindly note that only applicants whose proposals are short-listed will be contacted.
