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, 1 cooperative agreement(s) of $5,000,000 to an organization(s) to reduce child labor in Ethiopia’s agricultural sector using a gender focused approach. In support of the Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative (W-GDP), the project will focus on vulnerable women and adolescent girls (ages 15-17) working in the agriculture sector. The project will aim to achieve the following outcomes: (1) Increased technical capacity of the Government of Ethiopia to address child labor in the agricultural sector, with a focus in the informal sector, using a gender mainstreaming approach; (2) Improved ability of communities to reduce child labor using a gender mainstreaming approach; and (3) Increased economic stability of households vulnerable to child labor, with a focus on women and girls. For the purposes of this Notice of Intent, gender mainstreaming is defined as the process of assessing the implications for women and men of any planned action at all levels with the aim of achieving gender equality. 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.
