COMPETITION OVERVIEW
CRDF Global, on behalf of U.S. Department of State’s Biosecurity Engagement Program (BEP), is running a small grant program in support of Ebola affected countries in West Africa.  Proposals are being accepted through January 22, 2015.

Grant awards of $1,000 USD will be made in support of the Biosecurity Working Groups, who attended the INTERPOL Project RHINO 2015 Workshop in Dakar, Senegal. The goal of these small grants will be to provide these countries and the region with improved capability and capacity to respond to biological incidents, including Ebola and other biological threats. The represented countries include Liberia, Guinea, Nigeria, Mali, Sierra Leone and Senegal. The small grants will be up to three months in length.

The grant funds can be applied to logistics, travel, meeting expenses and similar costs to support Working Group activities.
