1) Objective

The U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL) is offering a grant opportunity aimed at advancing freedom of association and improving workers’ rights within Indonesia’s palm oil sector. The program seeks to support initiatives that promote democratic labor practices, enhance worker protections, and address labor rights issues.

By fostering improved working conditions and ensuring the right to freely associate, the grant aims to bring about significant positive changes in labor standards within the palm oil industry, ultimately contributing to the broader human rights landscape in Indonesia.

2) Eligibility

Eligible applicants include U.S.-based and foreign-based non-profit organizations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), public international organizations, private, public, or state institutions of higher education, and for-profit organizations or businesses. While DRL prefers to collaborate with non-profit entities, for-profit entities may also apply if they are best suited for the project.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Indonesia.

4) Budget

The estimated total program funding is not specified; however, the award ceiling and floor are both set at $800,000. This single award is intended to fund a comprehensive project that addresses the outlined objectives.

5) Application

Applications must be submitted by July 8, 2024. Interested organizations should ensure their proposals are aligned with the goals of advancing freedom of association and improving workers’ rights in the palm oil sector.
