The Regional Assistance Program II works with local, regional, and international organizations to respond rapidly (e.g., through subawards, direct training, and other technical assistance) to changing events on the ground in the Middle East and North Africa.
RAP II will support and provide technical assistance to organizations and projects with the following objectives:
- Respond to emergent political developments including, but not limited to, snap local and national elections
- Successfully complete an existing local or national political, legal, or social campaign that would benefit the society and strengthen the relationship between governmental and nongovernmental institutions
RAP II assistance may include a combination of financial support (e.g., subgrants) and technical assistance such as training, mentorship, or in-kind assistance from RAP II, its regional partners, or other IREX experts.
