The U. S. Embassy New Zealand Public Diplomacy Section (PDS) of the U. S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a program to develop and implement a Young Pacific Leaders (YPL) Program on Unlocking Funding:
a Comprehensive Grants Workshop

for Success sometime between 2025-2026 to provide Pacific leaders with skills in writing grant proposals, managing large grants and budgets, developing strategic plans, developing and managing stakeholders and funders, and leveraging private-public partnerships.

Target audiences will be individuals working in government, regional Pacific agencies, and businesses as grant writers, budget and resource managers, and stakeholder and partnership relationship managers.

This practical skills-based program will connect participants to larger pools of funding like the Green Climate Fund, USAID, and other Partners in the Blue Pacific funding streams.
