Counterpart International – REQUEST FOR APPLICATIONS – CD 15 de Julho de 2016

Counterpart International 





(Tetun iha kraik)

The USAID-funded Ba Distrito project will competitively award a decentralization advocacy grant to a non-governmental organization (NGO) to undertake advocacy and education campaign activities in Baucau, Covalima Ermera, and Liquiça.  The activities to be implemented by the successful applicant organization must create opportunities for citizens:

  1. To better understand new laws and policies being applied, related to decentralization; and
  2. To share their feedback with the policy makers at the municipal and national level, as well as implementers in their respective municipalities.

Outreach activities in each municipality should target the municipal, post administration and suco level.  Outreach must be done on a minimum of 3 decentralization laws or policies affecting each target municipality.  The laws prioritized for outreach and consultation will be decided in consultation with Counterpart International.  Examples of these laws could include the draft Suco Law; Decree Law No. 3/2016 establishing the municipal administration, municipal authorities and the technical working group for administrative decentralization; the draft Local Power and Administrative Decentralization Law, and the draft Municipal Electoral Law, if they are passed.

The grant is for a period of approximately 10 months and the anticipated amount of the total grant may be up to $35,000. Applications must be received by Ba Distrito by July 15, 2016.

Thank you!
