Applicants may propose work in any township within Southeastern Myanmar. Southeastern Myanmar is defined as: Kayah/Karenni State, Kayin/Karen State, Mon State, Southern Shan State, North Tanintharyi Region, and East Bago Region. Within this region, activities must serve hard to reach and/or underserved communities.
Please note: Advancing Community Empowerment anticipates engaging with the following eight townships for implementation in the project’s second year: 1. Thandaunggyi, 2. Kyainseikgyi, 3. Hlaingbwe, 4. Thanbyuzayat, 5. Pekon, 6. Hpasawng, 7. Demoso, 8. Hpruso. The project welcomes cooperative activities in these areas, but applicants are not required to apply for activities only in these townships.
|Management Team||For this EOI,there is a strong preference for local organizations that have ties to communities in Southeast Myanmar and demonstrable experience serving these communities.|
|Financial Statements||If chosen to submit a full application, the applicant is strongly encouraged to contribute resources from their own, private or local sources for the implementation of this program. Contributions can be either cash or in-kind and can include contributions from the applicant, local counterpart organizations, program clients and other donors (but not other U.S. government funding sources). This type of contribution is called cost share.|
