Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) - #19.500

Grants and Cooperative agreements to support political, economic, and educational reform efforts and the empowerment of women in the Middle East and North Africa.. MEPI encourages applications from partnerships or consortia led by local organizations based in the Middle East and North Africa. Awards are designed to benefit principally the non-governmental organizations and citizens of countries in the Middle East and North Africa. Preference will be given to countries in the region with less developed civil societies, and with limited experience in developing and implementing issue based campaigns on economic, democratic, or educational reforms, and advocacy for women's rights, aimed at increasing the number of active stakeholders and building effective local coalitions. MEPI has particular interest in supporting programs that are innovative and that meet needs and opportunities not already addressed by current donor funding, particularly through USAID bilateral agreements. Generally MEPI does not fund bricks and mortar type projects or stand-alone scholarships. Development projects in Egypt, Jordan, or Iraq are generally funded by USAID bilateral ESF funds.

MEPI is looking for new and innovative proposals to promote political, economic, and education reform and empower women in the Middle East and North Africa. Proposals that include cost-sharing, partnership with local NGOs or governments, a public outreach plan, and an alumni component will be viewed favorably. In addition, proposals should be responsiveness to the substantive provisions set forth in each Program Announcement or Request for Application posted www.grants.gov and www.mepi.state.gov.
