The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) as represented by the Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation, Office of Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment (DDI/GenDev), is seeking applicants for a proposed Fixed Amount Award (FAA) for funding a two-year program, followed by a possible three-year Cooperative Agreement with activities related to “Global Fund for Women – Localization Activity”.
The Global Fund for Women – Localization Activity will enable a greater share of USAID resources to be programmed directly with frontline women’s organizations globally, simultaneously advancing USAID priorities on gender equality and locally-led development. The activity will provide an efficient way to provide sub-awards to local organizations, enabling a rapid response to emerging challenges and opportunities in development and humanitarian assistance while centering feminist and women-led organizations at the heart of any response.
- Eligibility is restricted to the Global Fund for Women. The Global Fund for Women is a uniquely positioned network with unparalleled ability to reach frontline, grassroots women’s organizations.
- Over its 30-year history, Global Fund for Women has made grants to over 5,000 frontline women’s organizations in 176 countries and has demonstrated a unique ability to work with organizations that larger donors might not be able to reach, or that might not be eligible for funding, and to develop their capacity to manage and utilize resources.
Grant size: $10,000,000
Deadline: September 6th, 2022
