The Department of State’s Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation, Office of Cooperative Threat Reduction (ISN/CTR) is offering funding assistance for a project supporting the Department’s Cooperative Threat Reduction Program.
ISN/CTR seeks to promote self-sufficient nuclear, biological, and chemical security cultures with partner governments, technical organizations, and universities. Since 2012, ISN/CTR has funded the development of an evaluation tool to annually measure the effectiveness of its CTR programming. The CTR metrics tool is designed to assess the human element of threat reduction as evidenced by the establishment of nuclear, biological, and chemical security cultures in partner countries, institutions, and individuals.
For the current opportunity, ISN/CTR is seeking a new analysis of program work beyond 2016 using this evaluation tool. This analysis will provide ISN/CTR with solid empirical basis to assess effectiveness, devise new initiatives where needed, and choose among different activities to meet future programmatic needs.
ISN/CTR has up to $400,000 available in the current fiscal year to award one cooperative agreement in this field. Eligibility is limited to not-for-profit organizations subject to 501 (c) (3) of the tax code, for-profit organizations, and educational institutions. Direct funding for both U.S. and international organizations is also available under this announcement.
Further details are available via Funding Opportunity Number: ISN-ISNCTR-17-004. Applications are due Feb 03, 2017.
