For the Ambassador’s Fund for Cultural Preservation, there are two competitive grant awards for projects that preserve cultural heritage in less-developed countries around the world, including The Gambia. The Small Grants Competition considers projects from $10,000 (500,000 Dalasi) up to $200,000 (10,000,000 Dalasi), and the Large Grants Competition is for projects over $200,000 (10,000,000 Dalasi) to $800,000 (40,000,000 Dalasi). The U.S. Embassy will accept projects in two rounds. The initial round is for short statements of interest, due November 21, 2019. Those who submit a successful statement of interest will be invited to submit a full project proposal by December 15, 2019.
