The goals of this funding opportunity are similar to those in our NOFO process but extend our reach to new organizations and applicants:
- Promote tolerance, by funding proposals that combat hate and build community cohesion; engage at-risk youth; promote digital literacy; and engage communities on respect for diversity.
- Improve respect for human rights, through programs which strengthen democratic values; enhance awareness and protection of human rights principles; and encourage gender equality.
- Improve respect for and application of freedom of expression, through programs that promote a free and open media; strengthen understanding of social media; empower journalists through training (including ethics, investigative techniques, and English language)
