Five Pacific Island countries are eligible for grants of between US$20,000 and US$40,000 to support economic resilience, the United States Embassy in Suva has announced.

America is inviting grant proposals from Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga, and Tuvalu. The program is part of initiatives by the US Embassy and the Department of State in Washington, DC. to promote economic growth and help the region in its fight against COVID-19.

Chargé D’Affaires Tony Greubel said “With these Economic Recovery Grants, we hope to support local organizations in their efforts to mitigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. We look forward to proposals that provide innovative solutions and support communities across Fiji, Kiribati, Nauru, Tonga, and Tuvalu.”

He said the purpose of the grants are to assist local organisations and associations in finding creative solutions to the economic adversities caused by the pandemic, with a focus on projects related to developing tourism, entrepreneurship, and trade with the United States.

Grant proposals are due August 13, 2021.
