U.S. Embassy Tunisia

Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI)

* Enhancing Citizen Participation in Governance and Oversight in Tunisia *


Key Information:

Deadline Application     23:59:59 on February 15, 2015
Federal Agency Contact             MEPITunis@state.gov
Date Opened January 5, 2015


The U.S. Embassy announces a new Request for Application (RFA) to support Tunisia’s ongoing democratic transition through direct support to Tunisian civil society or non-governmental organizations. As U.S. President Barack Obama noted on December 22 “The strong commitment by Tunisia’s leaders and the Tunisian people to inclusive political dialogue, consensus-building, and democratic values has been crucial to the success of the political transition and will be equally important during the next phase of Tunisia’s history.  This historic moment is an opportunity for the international community to reaffirm and deepen its commitment to Tunisia. The United States stands at the forefront of this effort.”

This RFA is consistent with U.S. Department of State principles enshrined in the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) to build participatory societies in which citizens have regular opportunities to hold their government accountable and play active roles in making decisions that affect their lives.

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. Strengthened Tunisian institutions is only one side of the good governance equation.  Of equal importance, and especially critical to maintaining public confidence in the transition, is the role Tunisian civil society must play in serving as conduits for the expression of citizen views and in instilling accountability and transparency in governance.


Purpose of the Award:

Applications should work toward the following objectives:

  1. Build Tunisian NGO capacity to play a watchdog and accountability role post-national elections and develop effective civic education and advocacy efforts, especially for women and youth in the interior and southernmost governorates;
  2. Provide professional development opportunities for journalists and other media professionals to strengthen the role of media as a means of constructive communication between citizens and the Tunisian government, especially at the local level; and
  3. Sensitize the Tunisian public to issues related to decentralization and upcoming local elections, to include training for newly elected local government officials on intra-governmental advocacy, constituent consultation, and effective messaging.
