This call for proposals seeks applications for programs up to $100,00 0. A grants review committee reviews proposals on a quarterly basis to evaluate and prioritize proposals based on the availability of funds.

We invite proposals for projects that strengthen ties between the United States and Belgium by highlighting shared values, promoting bilateral cooperation, and enhancing the understanding of the United States in Belgium.

All grant proposals must convey an American cultural element, support a priority program area, and include a connection with American expert(s), organization(s), or institution(s) in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U. S. policy and perspectives.

· Programs that demonstrate active partnership between the United States and Belgium to address new and evolving security challenges; · Programs that highlight U.S.-Belgian cooperation that counters/prevents terrorism, extremism, transnational crime, and polarization; · Programs that strengthen the Transatlantic economic ties between Belgians and Americans and boost socio-economic well-being; · Innovative educational, cultural, and professional development programs likely to constitute a sustainable, long-term investment in U.S.-Belgian ties; and · Programs that have a national reach and impact by linking likeminded organizations across linguistic and regional divides.

We welcome applications for programs that reach out to:
· Academic institutions; · Business leaders and entrepreneurs; · Community leaders; · Cultural institutions; · Journalists, media organizations; · Social and new media users; · U. S. and Belgian thought leaders; · Women and youth from underserved communities; and · Youth.
