Department of Labor (USDOL, or the Department, or we), announces the availability of approximately $5 million total costs for one or two cooperative agreement(s) to fund a technical assistance project(s) in Mexico to improve working conditions


in the Mexican automotive parts sector and support the development of a successful model for implementing labor law reform.

Applicants may submit proposals to implement one or both objectives.

A single proposal may not address more than one objective.

Each proposal must independently meet all requirements of this FOA.

Each application submitted under Objective 1 may not request more than $3 million total costs.

(Award Ceiling) Each application submitted under Objective 2 may not request more than $2 million total costs.
