Description: NOTE: This is a Notice of Intent. An announcement is not related to this notice. We are not accepting applications at this time. Subject to the availability of funds, USDOL’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) intends to award, through a competitive process, up to two cooperative agreements to organization(s) — one to reduce child labor in cocoa-producing communities in Côte d’Ivoire and one to reduce child labor in cocoa-producing communities in Ghana. The project will aim to achieve the following two outcomes: (1) Improved accountability of cocoa cooperatives to monitor child labor in the cocoa supply chain; and (2) Increased support to vulnerable cocoa households within cocoa cooperatives. The Employment and Training Administration (ETA)’s Office of Grants Management anticipates publishing a Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) around July 13, 2020, and intends to make awards by November 30, 2020 (these dates are subject to change). Please refer to: http://www.dol.gov/ilab/grants/ and https://www.dol.gov/agencies/ilab/resources/grants for general guidelines and examples of previous cooperative agreement applications. This notice does not include an FOA or any attachments. It only constitutes a notice of USDOL’s intent to publish an FOA at a later date. Interested applicants are encouraged to monitor www.grants.gov for the FOA because, if an FOA is published, grants.gov is the method by which the FOA will be made available to the public. No email or paper copies of any FOA will be provided.
