Description: The U.S. Embassy Dhaka Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce a funding opportunity through this Annual Program Statement (APS) focused on strengthening, expanding, and celebrating U.S.-Bangladesh people-to-people ties, institutional linkages, and bilateral cooperation ahead of the 50th anniversary of U.S.-Bangladeshi diplomatic ties in 2022. As Bangladesh celebrates 50 years of independence, U.S. Embassy Dhaka looks forward to celebrating 50 years of U.S.-Bangladesh diplomatic relations. Over almost five decades, the United States and Bangladesh have expanded cooperation based on people-to-people ties and friendship grounded in mutual respect. In security, development, trade, health care, education, and energy, the United States and Bangladesh work together with a shared commitment to peace, prosperity, and a free, open, and secure Indo-Pacific region. As we look forward to celebrating a half century of partnership in 2022, PAS Dhaka invites proposals for projects that further the Embassy’s public diplomacy goals of celebrating the 50th anniversary of the establishment of bilateral relations between the United States and Bangladesh and renewing our commitment to work together to ensure a future full of peace and prosperity for the American and Bangladeshi people, including through programs that further strengthen people-to-people ties, highlight shared values, and promote bilateral cooperation. This APS outlines funding priorities, strategic themes of interest, and procedures for submitting requests for funding. PAS is soliciting proposals for projects from U.S. and Bangladeshi not-for-profits, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), think tanks, educational institutions, governmental institutions, and international organizations that focus on one of the priority areas specified below. (For more information, see Part C Eligibility Information.) Applicants should pay close attention to these priorities, examples of PAS programming, and key audiences when developing proposals. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the final deadline or funding is exhausted; see Section D for intermediate review deadlines. Applications may be submitted at any time for consideration before the deadline of this APS. However, applicants are encouraged to apply early. Please carefully follow all instructions below. Due to the volume of applicants and inquiries, PAS does not accept letters of intent, concept papers, or requests for meetings prior to application.
