Description: The Bureau of Oceans and International Environmental and Scientific Affairs’ (OES) Office of Environmental Quality and Transboundary Issues at the U.S. Department of State (DOS), announces the Notice of Funding Opportunity (“NOFO”) for activities under the “Building Air Quality Management Capacity in Central Asia” project. The agreement awarded will use U.S. Fiscal Year 2019 Economic Support Funds, subject to Congressional approval and availability of funds. The “Building Air Quality Management Capacity in Central Asia” project intends to strengthen regulatory and monitoring capacity of government actors and expand awareness of air quality issues among decision makers and the general public in at least one Central Asian country. More specifically, the project would target key host government entities to develop and enhance air quality monitoring capacity with low cost sensors, educational materials on AQI PM2.5 and PM10, formal expert workshops, and through the services of a professional monitoring and evaluation expert to develop and design a monitoring and evaluation plan to be used by key agencies. Countries that may be eligible for funding under this award include: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan. Eligibility is limited to U.S. non-profit/nongovernmental organizations subject to section 501 (c) (3) of the U. S. tax code, foreign not-for-profit/nongovernmental organizations, educational institutions, and public international organizations. A cooperative agreement, which will include the substantial involvement of the U.S. Department of State in order to support effectiveness and accountability for the American taxpayer, for up to $296,296 U.S. Dollars in FY 2019 Economic Support Funds (ESF) will be awarded for work that will support the OES Air Quality Program. The period of performance will be approximately 36 months. Funding authority rests in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended.
