BALADI Third Call for Municipal Applications

In response to the continuing needs of host communities and vulnerable areas in Lebanon, particularly in light of the persisting Syrian refugee crisis, the USAID-funded BALADI program is launching the third call for proposals to support municipal development projects that respond to Lebanese host community needs.

Through Rene Moawad Foundation (RMF), BALADI will support an estimated 11 to 20 new municipal-led local development activities nationwide. BALADI assistance will be considered for projects that primarily require equipment and machinery, can be implemented in four months, and have an immediate and sustainable impact for a significant number of beneficiaries.

BALADI grants could reach up to $100,000 for each supported activity. The beneficiary municipality and community are expected to contribute 20% of project costs, in kind or in cash. Proposals must be submitted by August 21, 2017.
