2013 Competitive Grant Solicitation

for Non-Governmental Organizations


The Department of State’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (the TIP Office) is announcing an open competition for fiscal year 2013 funding of projects to combat trafficking in persons outside of the United States.

The first stage of competition begins with this solicitation for two-page Statements of Interest (SOI) from eligible organizations interested in submitting proposals for projects that address specific recommendations identified in the 2012 Trafficking in Persons Report. In the second stage, the TIP Office will invite selected applicants to submit full proposals that expand upon their capability to perform the project proposed in the first stage SOIs. U.S.-based and foreign non-profit, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and institutions of higher education are eligible to apply. For-profit organizations are eligible to apply on a limited basis. Public International Organizations (IOs) are not eligible to apply under this solicitation. Pending the availability of appropriated funds, the TIP Office anticipates awarding grants of up to $750,000 per project.

All SOIs must be submitted via www.grantsolutions.gov OR www.grants.gov by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST) on Monday, January 21, 2013.
