Grant Description

The U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) seeks single-country proposals for our Local Grants program. The Local Grants program serves as MEPI’s most direct means of supporting organizations and individuals in the Middle East and North Africa. These grants are designed to: • Promote positive change, advocacy, and civic activism; • Strengthen civil society; • Support citizen’s efforts to achieve economic, social, and political empowerment; • Expand opportunities for women and youth; • Strengthen the rule of law; • Develop independent media; and • Help communities work alongside governments in shaping their own futures. MEPI’s Med Region Office and Arabian Peninsula Regional Office, located in the Middle East and North Africa, manages the program. For more information about MEPI’s Regional Offices, or to contact them, visit: or A MEPI Committee at the U.S. Embassy or Consulate within each country of origin review all local grant proposals and one of our two MEPI regional offices process and negotiate the awards. MEPI accepts proposals to this program on a rolling basis, but each U.S. Embassy or Consulate has a unique selection process for submissions. Applicants should check with the respective U.S. Embassy or Consulate before preparing their submission. Only the most competitive proposals received by MEPI Committees will be selected for further consideration by MEPI's regional offices.
