Détails de l'opportunité


The U.S. Embassy announces a new Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to support Tunisia’s economic growth through direct support to Tunisian civil society or non-governmental organizations.

This NOFO is consistent with U.S. Department of State principles enshrined in the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) to foster prosperous societies where education, specialized skill training, and an environment conducive to business development inspire innovation and create the foundation for long-term economic growth and an internationally competitive private sector.

The U.S. Embassy invites Tunisian civil society organizations or non-governmental organizations to submit creative and detailed proposals, which address an array of needs outlined below.

Purpose of the Award: 

Applications should work toward at least one of the following objectives:

1. Increase access to financing and credit for all Tunisians throughout the country to spur enterprise growth, job creation, and economic development in marginalized regions. Proposals should not include providing micro-credit awards.

2. Develop the Tunisian workforce’s job skills, especially those of youth, to enable jobseekers to complete in today’s global marketplace to reduce unemployment.

3. Improve customer service skills of candidates seeking employment in Tunisia’s important service sectors, such as tourism, food and beverage, and communications.


Funding Instrument Type: Grant

Size of Awards: Awards typically range from $50,000 to $150,000.

Date Opened: February 01, 2016

Date Closed: February 29, 2016


Eligible Applicants

Eligible applicants include local organizations of civil society, non-profit organizations, community groups, non-governmental organizations, professional associations, private sector organizations, and universities based in Tunisia. The U.S. Embassy’s preference is to work with non-profit entities; however, there may be occasions when a for-profit entity is best suited. This NOFO can fund local branches of foreign organizations but only if the local branch is legally organized under Tunisia laws and the local branch also meets the registration requirements to obtain its own DUNS number. The local branch must also demonstrate that its local Board of Directors is comprised of more than 50% of local Board members and the local organization conducts most budgeting and M&E functions locally and not via the main office.

For-profit entities should be aware that its application may be subject to additional review following the panel selection process and that the Department of State generally prohibits profit under its assistance awards to for-profit or commercial organizations. Profit is defined as any amount in excess of allowable direct and indirect costs. The allowability of costs incurred by commercial organizations is determined in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) at 48 CFR 30, Cost Accounting Standards Administration, and 48 CFR 31 Contract Cost Principles and Procedures. Project income earned by the recipient must be deducted from the total project allowable cost in determining the net allowable costs on which the federal share of costs is based.

The U.S. Embassy is committed to an anti-discrimination policy in all of its projects and activities. The U.S. Embassy welcomes proposals irrespective of the applicant’s race, ethnicity, color, creed, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability. We invite applications from organizations working with minority, disenfranchised, and lesser-served communities, including women and youth. The U.S. Embassy is also interested in proposals that involve the participation of persons with disabilities.
