The U.S. Embassy in Kigali of the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to improve fiscal transparency of the central government and state-owned enterprises.

The overall objective of the grant is to expand the amount of publicly available budget information and increase the public’s capacity to analyze it. On the supply side, the project will seek to encourage the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, the Parliament, and local governments to make pre- and post-budget enactment information available. It will also aim to encourage the government to provide feedback on inputs from the public.

On the demand side, the project will strengthen the capacity of CSOs, media, and community-based institutions to engage in budget preparation and demand accountability.
