Program activities should focus on addressing the barriers to economic opportunities in marginalized groups, particularly the Arab-Israeli and Ethiopian communities, with a specific focus on political and civic engagement, improving the socio-economic inclusion of minorities within these communities, and reducing discrimination and community-based violence.
Proposals should support advocacy efforts that lead to the improvement of conditions in local communities and to the development and implementation of community-designed policies to address barriers to and promote inclusion. Proposals should also improve the ability of NGOs to engage effectively on issues related to community-based violence as well as other barriers to social mobility and economic growth.
