By BBN Staff: On May 12, the U.S. Embassy’s acting deputy chief of mission, Beverly Mather-Marcus shared more information about the notice of funding opportunity for the Central America Regional Security Initiative (CARSI) grants on COVID-19 watch with host Andre Pitts.
Marcus said that since 2008, the United States Government commenced the program in Belize and it has been active for over 10 years now.
The latest call for proposals was done this year and the deadline for submission of the proposals is June 3.
Marcus explained that the US government has US $750,000 that will be shared between 3 to 5 grants and each project must be for a period of 2 years. The programs are expected to begin by September 2020.
The money will go directly to civil society organizations, non-government organizations, or academia.
“It is specifically going toward good governance efforts. This year we have 3 major categories that we are looking for the grants to fill. It can fill one or multiple categories. But we are really looking for government and civil society partnerships to improve government service delivery. This year we are encouraging grants that address the areas of education and health,” Marcus said.
