Freedom House has announced for the Media Freedom Matters to financial support to advocacy, education, and outreach initiatives for media in Moldova.
Freedom House welcomes for funding and support from local, registered non-governmental organizations and coalitions based in the Republic of Moldova, the Eastern Partnership Region, and the European Union that seek to raise awareness about press freedom, freedom of expression, and independent media in the Republic of Moldova, including among the public, marginalized communities, government, local authorities, and other sectors.
The “Media Freedom Matters” grants program will serve the following objectives:
Freedom House will select up to two (2) advocacy initiatives for up to $10,000 in funding each. Applications will be considered in the following thematic areas:
Initiatives aimed at strengthening the role of media in advancing accountability for corruption, human rights abuses, or other violations that are focused on using, developing, or supporting domestic approaches and processes are encouraged.
Priority will be given to organizations and initiatives that see themselves as media freedom or support organizations, or agents of transparency, accountability, and democratic development. In addition, priority will be given to those initiatives addressing local- or regional-level freedom of expression or press freedom issues.
Selected initiatives will receive a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 10 months of financial assistance. Freedom House will support public campaigning, advocacy, and other outreach initiatives that will raise greater public awareness and hold the government and other relevant actors accountable to take concrete steps towards improving respect for press freedom and freedom of expression in the Republic of Moldova.
