The U.S. Embassy in Kingston is pleased to announce Call for Proposals for the 2017 Ambassadors Fund for Cultural Preservation (AFCP). The Fund created by the U.S. Congress in 2001 aims to provide grant awards to preserve cultural heritage around the world, ranging from the renovation of historical monuments and restoration of artefacts to the documentation of traditional cultural expression. To date, the AFCP has given out over U.S. $12 million to support almost 500 projects worldwide, illustrating the commitment of the United States to help people and nations around the world save and safeguard their deep-rich cultural traditions. Jamaican institutions consistently over perform in this global funding competition: over the last decade, we have funded a half dozen projects on-island, totally over U.S. $160,000.
For 2017, we are asking for proposals ranging from small grants – US$10,000 to US$180,000 – to large grants – US$200,000 to US$500,000. Project proposals can range from one to three years.
Deadline for submitting applications: January 16, 2017.
