The Embassy of the United States in North Macedonia announces the Democracy Commission Small Grants Program, an open competition for organizations/independent media to submit a statement of interest (SOI) to carry out a program (or programs) that support the development of democratic institutions.

The Democracy Commission Small Grants Program program has five priority areas including:

  • Rule of Law and Government Accountability – Projects should address strengthening the rule of law, judicial independence, good governance, and the fight against corruption.  Projects should foster a more robust citizen-responsive government with strong democratic institutions.
  • Citizen Participation – Projects should support strengthening democratic institutions in North Macedonia, including increasing participation and representation of citizens from all backgrounds in civic life.
  • Cybersecurity and Disinformation – Projects should promote cybersecurity, media literacy, and efforts to counter propaganda and disinformation.

Applicants should clearly define the target audience(s) that they are able to reach/influence with the project activities realistically. Broad target audiences such as the general public, youth, everyone, etc. should be avoided.
