PROGRAM DESCRIPTION The U.S. Department of State’s International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement Affairs Office of the U.S. Embassy in Kenya announces an open competition for funding proposals. Organizations may submit applications for funding to carry out a training project for members and organizations of the Kenyan criminal justice sector focused on alternatives to incarceration for drug offenses and alternative treatments for persons with substance abuse disorders. The project supports the Embassy’s strategic goal of strengthening rule of law while protecting human rights. Please carefully follow all instructions below and submit full and complete applications by September 30. Priority Region: Nairobi, Kenya and Mombasa, Kenya. Program Objectives: Substance abuse disorders are a growing problem in Kenya, one which the Kenyan legal and criminal justice system has not previously faced. This program seeks to expand awareness within Kenyan law enforcement and administration of justice sectors of the full range of treatment and other options available to help those suffering from substance abuse disorders. The grantee will design and implement a series of trainings on “Treatment for substance abuse disorders as an alternative to incarceration” targeting officials within the law enforcement, corrections, prosecutorial, and judicial sectors. Training participants will gain an understanding of substance abuse and addiction as a treatable illness and a public health concern, and not merely a question of administration of justice or punitive law enforcement action. Participants will take away knowledge of alternative methods to handle persons in the criminal justice system who are dealing with substance abuse disorders. Individuals and institutions interested in bidding on this grant should submit a proposal, including a summary of activities, a set of measurable objectives and indicators, list of key personnel, and a budget narrative and detailed budget. The successful grantee will demonstrate an ability to effectively handle funds, coordinate logistics, and finalize payments in a timely manner.

Presentation of trainee evaluations and recommendationsAt the conclusion of training, the grantee will attend a closeout conference with INL Kenya to present findings and lessons learned from the training sessions, key feedback from written evaluations, and to make any recommendations for future programming related to treatment of substance abuse disorders and drug demand reduction in Kenya. Participants and Audiences: The participants are Kenyan officials working within law enforcement, corrections, and other administration of justice agencies, to include prosecutors and members of the judiciary who regularly handle offenders and offenses related to substance abuse disorders.
