Grants and Funding Opportunities

The U.S. Embassy in Angola is pleased to request proposals for funding opportunies available throughout the year. Please select the opportunity of interest and follow all instructions carefully.  


The U.S. Embassy Luanda Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Department of State is pleased to announce this Request for Statements of Interest (SOI) from organizations interested in applying for funding of programs that strengthen ties between the people of the United States and Angola through cultural and exchange programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. This is an Annual Program Statement, outlining our funding priorities and the procedures for submitting requests for funding. Please carefully follow all instructions in the Notice of Funding Opportunity below.

The submission of a SOI is the first step in a two-part process. Applicants must first submit a SOI, which is a concise, one-to-two-page concept note in English designed to clearly communicate a program idea and its objectives before the development of a full proposal application. The purpose of the SOI process is to allow applicants the opportunity to submit program ideas for PAS to evaluate prior to requiring the development of full proposal applications. Upon review of eligible SOIs, PAS will invite selected applicants to expand their ideas into full proposal applications.

Program Objectives:

These small grants intend to strengthen ties and build relationships between the United States and Angola through activities that highlight shared values, goals, and promotes bilateral cooperation. All proposals must have a strong American cultural element, or a connection with American expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives.

Deadline for Applications:           Round 1 for Statements of Interest: New Deadline: April 7, 2022 (11:59 p.m.)

Round 2 for Full Proposals: May 31, 2022 (11:59 p.m.)

Please contact with any questions about the application process, including APS 2022 in the subject line.

The U.S. Embassy Luanda, under the auspices of the Office of the Regional Refugee Coordinator, is pleased to announce the availability of a funding opportunity through the 2023 Julia Taft Fund for Refugees. The Julia Taft Fund for Refugees is an initiative by the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Population, Refugees, and Migration (PRM) to respond to critical unmet needs of refugees. Created in 2000, the Julia Taft Fund for Refugees supports projects that fill gaps in refugee services not already being addressed by other organizations and that can be filled locally. Successful projects are those that are not being addressed by International Organizations (IOs), and International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs), that are already receiving U.S. government funding.


Applications are due on or before January 16, 2023.
