Grant Opportunities

The U.S. Embassy has limited funding to support projects and programs that strengthen ties between the United States and Croatia.

  • Open Grants competitions
  • Expired Grants competitions

The U.S. Embassy advertises Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFOs), which detail priority themes and requirements for submitting a proposal. Please click on the links above for more information on specific grants or email zagrebpdgrants@state.gov.

Important note for all applicants:

To submit a proposal and be eligible to receive funding, all partner organizations must have:

  • A unique entity identifier number, Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS), from Dun & Bradstreet
  • A NATO Commercial and Government Entity code (NCAGE)
  • A valid System for Award Management (SAM) registration on SAM.gov.

Registrations are online and free of charge but can take several weeks to finalize. We strongly recommend that you begin the registration process immediately.

Step 1: Apply for a DUNS number and an NCAGE code (these can be completed simultaneously).

Please use the same organization name, contact information and addresses for all registrations.

DUNS application: If your organization does not have a DUNS number, you may obtain one by registering here

NCAGE application: Please request an NCAGE code by registering here.

Detailed instructions for the NCAGE, DUNS and SAM.gov application process are available here.

Step 2: After receiving a DUNS number and an NCAGE code, proceed to register in SAM.gov.

Please visit SAM.gov for registration and help with registration. Please note that obtaining your username and password does not complete the registration. This only allows you to enter the database and register your organization. SAM registration must be renewed annually.  Please visit SAM.gov for help with registration as the U.S. Embassy cannot provide support related to SAM.gov registration.
