Description: The United States Embassy in Brasília, Brazil, announces a notification of funding opportunity (NOFO) to support an USBEA Small Grants Program designed to support activities of U.S. government sponsored exchange alumni in Brazil with up to U$30,000 in FY2017 for a project period not to exceed 12 months. The preliminary start date for this activity is September 30, 2017, and one award is anticipated as a result of this NOFO. However, should both parties consider the results of this alumni small grants program to be positive – and also subject to availability of funds – we may agree to renew this NOFO for up to two additional years. We are seeking proposals for the development and implementation of a small grants program to support projects by alumni of U.S. government exchange programs in Brazil. Potential recipients of the small grants offered by this program are Brazilian Alumni who participated in USG sponsored exchange programs and are active members of USBEA chapters in Brazil. This opportunity furthers U.S. foreign policy priorities by strengthening ties with its alumni in Brazil who share American values and interests and assist them in spreading those values and interests in their local communities. U.S. Embassy Brasília, Brazil reserves the right to fund any or none of the applications submitted and will determine the resulting level of funding for the award. The authority for this NOFO is found in the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended. Eligible organizations interested in submitting an application are encouraged to read this NOFO thoroughly to understand the type of project sought and the application submission requirements and evaluation process.
