In light of the unprecedented refugee influx due to Russia’s war in Ukraine, the Embassy of the United States in Vilnius, Lithuania announces an open competition for non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society and private organizations assisting Ukrainian refugees in Lithuania to submit applications to the Complementary Response Small Grants Program (CRSGP).

Facilitating free flow of information (including support for independent media) to refugee populations and/or countering disinformation is one of the potential project priorities to support Ukrainian refugee communities.

Projects should be designed to benefit the Ukrainian refugee community.  Projects can serve Ukrainians directly in Lithuania or indirectly through training or other programs for persons that provide services that impact the well-being of Ukrainian refugees in the country.

The Complementary Response Small Grants may be used to promote non-discrimination and tolerance for disadvantaged minorities but should not be used to promote the particular agenda of a specific group, practice, or lifestyle over any other. Grants cannot support any goals of religious nature. Grants are not intended to pay salaries outside of the scope of the project. Grants may not be used for partisan political activity.

Proposed projects should complement existing refugee and humanitarian assistance provided through state or local governments, state agencies, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), International Organization for Migration (IOM), or other international organizations (IOs).
