Background
The U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL) is announcing an open competition for proposals that enable civil society organizations in Libya to play a leading role in promoting, protecting, and responding to serious violations of international human rights, humanitarian law, and other abuses in Libya. DRL’s goal is to promote justice and accountability for serious violations of international human rights, humanitarian law, mass atrocities and other human rights violations across Libya.

Grant Details
DRL seeks programs that will bolster survivor-centered justice and sustainable accountability mechanisms. Successful program designs should center civil society demands, incorporate survivor-centered methodologies to transitional justice, and prioritize long-term accountability. Programs should enable Libyan civil society to engage on accountability initiatives for human rights effectively and safely.
Potential program approaches may include efforts to: strengthen individual and/or networks of Libyan civil society organizations documenting, investigating, and/or denouncing human rights violations; increase quality reporting around human rights violations; advocate for increased global awareness and attention to human rights violations in Libya; empower Libyan civil society, individual survivors, and survivors’ groups to effectively advocate for their vision of transitional justice; create, improve, or reinvigorate Libyan-led referral networks, CSO-based service providers, local institutions, and professionalized networks that enhance access to services for survivors of violations; provide CSOs with access to multi-sectoral operational security and resilience services.

Eligibility Requirements
DRL welcomes applications from U.S.-based and foreign-based non-profit organizations/nongovernmental organizations (NGO) and public international organizations; private, public, or state institutions of higher education; and for-profit organizations or businesses. DRL’s preference is to work with non-profit entities; however, there may be some occasions when a for-profit entity is best suited.

Period of Performance
The period of performance for the grant is 24-36 months.

Grant Value
$750,000 - $2,000,000 with anticipated number of awards being 1-2.

Place of Performance
All proposed program objectives must have their primary scope and impact inside Libya. Working with local Libyan partners should be a central aspect of any proposed program.
