G/TIP Grant Program
2012 Anti-Trafficking In Persons Competitive Grant Program - Request for Submissions
The U.S. Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons is pleased to announce a two-stage competitive process for fiscal year 2012 funding of projects aimed to reduce trafficking in persons outside the United States.
The first stage is the submission of a Statements of Interest (SOI), accompanied by a two-page proposed project proposal. In the second stage, G/TIP will invite applicants whose Statements of Interest are reviewed favorably to submit proposals that expand on their Statement of Interest. These proposals will also be reviewed by a panel for funding consideration.
U.S.-based and foreign non-profit and non-governmental organizations (NGO), public international organizations (PIO), and universities are eligible to apply for funding. Pending appropriations, G/TIP anticipates awarding grants of up to US $ 750,000 per project for 36 months per project. Further information relating to the grant program as well as country-specific recommendations from the 2010 Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report are available at: www.state.gov/g/tip/.
Interested applicants MUST submit a Statement of Interest by applying to: http://www.grants.gov. The deadline for submitting Statements of Interests is Friday, November 18, 2011 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).
