The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has launched a Request for Applications for the Development Grants Program providing support in the three sectors of microenterprise, water and climate changeadaptation. Applications can be submitted by indigenous, local NGOs from different countries or private and voluntary organizations in the US.
The Development Grants Program aims to create new partnerships between USAID and NGOs which have limited or have not been able to access prior funding directly from the USAID. Through this program, the Agency seeks to expand its network of NGOs and build their capacity.
The objectives of the DGP as presented in this Request for Applications are:
1. Broadened participation in USAID programs of local NGOs and U.S. PVOs with experience and expertise relevant to priority USAID and partner country development objectives;
2. Expanded numbers of local NGOs and U.S. PVOs with planning, management and service delivery systems adequate to implement USAID-funded activities; and
3. Measurable contributions by LNGOs and U.S. PVOs to the achievement of the development objectives for participating USAID Missions’ country programs, in particular as they pertain to Agency priorities and initiatives.
A list of eligible countries along with the specific funding sectors is given in the link below. To apply to this program, concept notes have to be submitted initially outlining the proposed project in the areas of microenterprise, water and climate change adaptation. Detailed proposals will be requested after the review of concept notes.
The closing date for the submission of concept notes is 25 April 2011.
