The U.S. Embassy announced a Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) in Costa Rica to strengthen equity and equality in the country.

According to the embassy, the grant is about $1.9 million led by the Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs (WHA) Race, Ethnicity, and Social Inclusion (RESI).

This project aims to increase collaboration and strengthen networks among host country civil society partners in Costa Rica to advance reforms that promote equity and equality, eliminate barriers to inclusion, and create equal access and opportunities for members of marginalized and underserved communities.

Through the training of diverse civil society leaders and capacity building of civil society and community networks, this project seeks to further WHA’s RESI goals.

In Costa Rica, the proposals must focus on economic opportunities, including digital economic workforce development, for Indigenous and Afro-descendent populations, particularly in areas outside of the capital.

The closing date for applying is April 12, 2024. People interested in presenting a proposal should meet the requirements listed on the Grant Opportunity website.
