The Democracy Commission Small Grants program was initiated in 1994 as a flexible mechanism to enable embassies to support local democratic initiatives in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe and the NIS.
The implementing body at each mission is the Democracy Commission, chaired by the Ambassador and including the Public Affairs Officer, other members of the Country Team, and representatives of other USG agencies.
Grants are aimed primarily at indigenous NGO’s. Grants are awarded on the basis of a competition or upon determination of need by the Commission. Funds are disbursed by the Public Affairs Officer or the designated grants officer. Please, find more details under the link below: http://armenia.usembassy.gov.
