More information about our full proposal process can be found on our

OTF utilizes public funds to support Internet freedom projects. We
support projects that develop open and accessible technologies promoting
human rights and open societies. In general, the areas of focus are
research, development, implementation and deployment. We strive to
advance inclusive and safe access to global communication networks.

Created in 2012, OTF is an Radio Free Asia (RFA) program supported by
funds from the Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG). The BBG’s mission
is to inform, engage, and connect people around the world in support of
freedom and democracy. RFA’s mission is to provide accurate and timely
information to the people of Asia who lack adequate protections for
freedom of expression, free speech, and a free press.

In a globally interconnected society, creating and protecting freedom of
expression, free speech, and a free press requires cross-border
technology tools that enable the exercise of human rights within
repressive societies for the global population. OTF strives to incubate
and support tech-centric projects that create or increase the use of
these tools around the world. More information on our program can be
found at

If you have any questions, please send them our way by emailing otf at

We look forward to your submission.
