About MEPI

MEPI logo © State Department

The U.S.-Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) of the State Department offers assistance, training, and support to groups and individuals striving to create positive change in the society.  MEPI works in 18 countries and territories, partnering with civil society organizations (CSOs), community leaders, youth and women activists, and private sector groups to advance their reform efforts.  MEPI’s approach is bottom-up and grassroots, responding directly to local interests and needs. 

MEPI has been active in the MENA region since 2002, contributing over $600 million to more than 1,000 grant projects administered by our offices in Washington, D.C. and the region.
