receiving USG assistance through other ongoing programs.

We are particularly interested in projects aimed at assisting communities that are hosting displaced Syrians, such as through economic empowerment, youth volunteering initiatives, and conflict resolution activities.

In addition, we welcome projects that promote ethnic and religious tolerance and acceptance and that enlighten youth to the dangers of sectarianism and political extremism.

These grants are implemented by members of civil society, including individuals, non-governmental organizations, civic groups, reform networks, and academic institutions that are committed to supporting democratic values and the active participation of all individuals in social, political, and economic life.
