Ambassador’s SSH Program – PEPFAR Small Grants Fund (Zimbabwe)Deadline: 15-Jan-23
The U.S. Department of State, through the U.S. Embassy in Zimbabwe, announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a small, community-based development program.
The Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSH) Program through the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) awards grants to registered non-governmental, non-profit, community-based organizations to implement short-term (12-month), small-scale (between $15,000 and $20,000) development projects that include significant community involvement.
Priority consideration is given to income generating projects with a health component that improve basic economic or social conditions at the village level.
Project activities and spending should be completed within 12 months with an anticipated start date between September 1 and September 30, 2023, depending on when funding is made available.
The SSH Program receives hundreds of applications for funding each year. All submissions are reviewed in a competitive and transparent manner. However, given the limited funding available through the SSH Program, they can only fund a small number of projects each year.
Award amounts: awards may range from a minimum of $15,000 to a maximum of $20,000
Total available funding: $60,000 (dependent on final figures from PEPFAR)
Length of performance period: 12 months
