Description: The United States Department of State’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs (WHA) announces a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to address the root causes of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) in Latin America and the Caribbean as well as build the capacity of GBV survivor support-service providers. GBV ranges from intimate partner violence to gender-based killing of women and girls, significantly hindering the ability of individuals to participate fully in society and contribute to their families and communities. Subject to availability of funds, WHA intends to issue one award to not exceed $888,888 in FY 2019 Economic Support Funds (ESF) for a project period up to three (3) years, and of which up to $294,444 will support designated high-income countries in the region such as Chile, Panama, and Uruguay. Middle- and low-income countries in WHA will be beneficiaries of the remaining funds of which up to $594,444 will support project activities and may include but are not limited to Argentina, Belize, Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, Mexico, and Peru. Grant funds cannot directly assist or support GBV survivors; rather, grant funds should improve the delivery of services from organizations to GBV survivors, and/or address socio-cultural norms that perpetuate GBV through sensitization trainings to ensure individuals from communities with high rates of GBV have a better understanding of what the root causes of GBV are, and promote non-violent relationships. The $888,888 is attributed to a global U.S. Department of State congressional GBV earmark, and supports the U.S. Department of State and the Administration’s Women Peace and Security (WPS) Policy Outcomes 2 & 3, and the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity (W-GDP) Initiative Pillar 3.
