USAID Development Grants Program: The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the Office of Innovation and Development Alliances (IDEA), Local Sustainability (LS) Division, is inviting applications from local NGOs (LNGOs) and also US private and voluntary organizations to apply for grants under the Development Grants Program.
The IDEA Office seeks to reach development goals more quickly, cost-efficiently, sustainably, and at wider scale through innovation (meaning significant, not incremental, improvements in development impact) and partnership.
The LS Division of IDEA works to improve the sustainability of civil society organizations by focusing on supporting innovative local development projects and capacity development.
The overall objective of the DGP is to contribute to improved and sustainable grass roots development by supporting development projects and strengthening capacities of nascent development partners in countries where the DGP is active.
The DGP has a priority of strengthening LNGOs and US PVOs, recognizing that a vibrant and active NGO sector is fundamental to promoting a healthy democracy that is accountable and responsive to citizens’ needs.
NGOs in select countries can apply for select sectors which can include rural development, basic education, micoenterprise, health- HIV and AIDS, water, democracy and governance, business advocacy, energy efficiency awareness etc.
The deadline to submit concept notes is 2 July.
