Innovation and Challenge Grants (ICG) Program
The USAID Civil Society Engagement Program announces the open-door Innovation and Challenge Grants (ICGs) program to support citizen engagement and community-strengthening initiatives by Georgian civil society organizations (CSOs), civic movements, professional associations, and unregistered citizen groups. The ICGs will be awarded through a competitive application process.
