The purpose of this Annual Program Statement (APS) is to solicit applications for funding.  Counterpart International/Internet Governance/Freedom is seeking proposals from prospective partners to implement activities that propose creative and effective approaches to improving the regulatory environment that will enable national, regional and global actors to defend against censorship, surveillance, and legal developments that threaten digital rights.

The total amount of funding currently available for proposals is approximately $10,000 to $90,000.  CPI/Internet Governance/Freedom may choose to fully fund or incrementally fund the selected application(s). The number of awards and amount of available funding is subject to change and CPI/Internet Governance/Freedom reserves the right to make no awards as a result of this APS. Proposals will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
