U.S. Mission to Ukraine: Seeking Proposals for Ukraine Media Partnership Program
Deadline: 11 July 2018
The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of U.S. Embassy Kyiv is pleased to announce an open competition for program proposals through this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO). PAS invites U.S. non-profit/non-governmental organizations to submit media support and exchange program concept papers for supporting professional and financially viable media in Ukraine.
The project goal is to create and maintain long-term relationships between selected American and Ukrainian media outlets of similar size, and between the individuals who work at both outlets. Within this framework, Ukrainian professionals in print, online, and broadcast media will have the opportunity to interact with U.S. counterparts and to take part in practical training, organized by their U.S. partner. This project seeks to promote the development of free and independent Ukrainian media outlets that are financially viable, based on the fact that independent media is critical for the further democratic development of Ukraine.
- Award Amount: $400,000
- Award Period: 12 months
- Eligibility is limited to not-for-profit organizations subject to 501 (c) (3) of the tax code. Direct funding for non-U.S. institutions is not available under this announcement. The Department encourages organizations that have not previously received international program funding from the USG to apply under this announcement.
- Applicants are not required to include funding from other donors. Applicants should be knowledgeable of existing media-support programs in Ukraine, including those funded by USG, in order to avoid duplication of effort.
