March 6, 2020

U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)

The Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights and Governance (DRG) within the Bureau of Democracy, Conflict and Humanitarian Assistance (DCHA) of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is inviting all interested USAID Missions to apply for FY19 Disability Funding to support programming in the area of Employment and Economic Empowerment (EEE).

Approximately $6 million is available for this Mission-wide, competitive program (subject to finalization of funding levels). Submissions will be considered within the following two funding ranges: from $300,000 to $500,000 and from $500,001 to $1,000,000.

Projects may be stand-alone targeted programs, or they can be mainstreamed within larger Mission programs. Within the EEE theme, projects should reflect the most pressing needs in the country and align with the Mission’s development priorities. All proposals must be guided by the values and provisions set forth in the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD).
