Dear Current Peace Corps Albania Volunteers,

Friends of Albania (FOA) funds community projects organized by United States Peace Corps Volunteers and partner organizations or individual counterparts across Albania. We are happy to announce our next open call for grant applications. The maximum grant award is $350. Grants are available to all volunteers who have served for at least 6 months and are no less than 6 months from close of service. These terms ensure that volunteers have an adequate understanding of the needs of their communities and the feasibility of potential projects, and that all project activities may be completed prior to COS.

FOA will be accepting grant applications starting today and through March 15th, 2018. The FOA grants committee will review applications in the order they are received and communicate with applicants regarding requests for more information or proposal modifications. Applicants will receive a response from the FOA Board approving or denying all funding requests no later than April 1st, 2018. Funds will be disbursed following applicants' completion of our terms of agreement.

Please read our grant application forms carefully and address any questions to foa@friendsofalbania.net. The next call for applications is scheduled to open in late summer 2018 for fall grants and later. This cycle, all volunteer-counterpart teams will receive their first and second grant payments via Western Union.
