The Public Affairs Section (PAS) of the U.S. Embassy in Lima is pleased to announce a competition for assistance awards through this Notice of Funding Opportunity. The program should support a “community policing program” that encourages partnerships between law enforcement and local community organizations and businesses to reduce crime and change attitudes towards the police and guarantee citizen security. It would include working with police stations and communities.
PAS Lima invites proposals for projects that strengthen ties between the United States and Peru through cultural and exchange programming that highlights shared values and promotes bilateral cooperation. All programs must include a U.S. cultural element, or connection with U.S. expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote an increased understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives.
PAS is more likely to fund programs that directly support the Integrated Country Strategy, which can be found under Western Hemisphere The program should explore the function of law enforcement in addressing violent crimes and organize community meetings to promote values and practices that demonstrate respect for and adherence to the law.
The grantee should explore the ramifications for communities that have lost confidence in their police force or judicial system and propose strategies to regain the communities’ trust in law enforcement.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 23-Jul-21.
