The Public Diplomacy Section of Embassy Tunis of the U.S. Department of State announces a grant through this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for open competition for non-profit organizations to submit applications to develop and implement journalism capacity building programs in Tunisia. Increased public interest in Tunisia’s political reform process offers an opportunity to increase citizen participation in Tunisia’s political institutions and government accountability, particularly on local governance issues. In addition, Tunisia’s current economic crisis calls for journalists to understand the impact of the economy on political developments. Tunisia’s independent media, citizen journalists, and other non-traditional information providers play a critical role in promoting free and open dialogue on the country’s political reforms and economic developments. However, increasing political polarization is fostering self-censorship and threatens the environment for freedom of expression.
