The U.S. Embassy in Kinshasa occasionally offers grants opportunities for local organizations. Please carefully read the eligibility information about:
Public Affairs Small Grants Program
The Public Affairs Section (PAS) invites organizations to submit proposals for funding through its PAS grants program during its grants solicitation periods to KinshasaPDGrants@state.gov. Unsolicited grant proposals will be reviewed quarterly.
The PAS grants programs support projects that further U.S. foreign policy, U.S. interests and universal values in Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). PAS engagement in all realms — including direct foreign assistance via grants — is guided by support for the institutions and processes that undergird the democratization in the DRC: economic growth, citizen safety, good governance, education, health, environment, and a vibrant civil society.
Proposals should clearly demonstrate how the program relates to and promotes U.S. foreign policy. Organizations and projects which have received funding in the previous 5 years may apply, but priority is given to organizations and projects which have not been previously funded by the Government of the United States of America.
