Ambassador’s Small Grants Program

Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Program

The Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSHP) program is a grassroots grant assistance program that funds grants for small development activities that generate public awareness of U.S. foreign assistance efforts which fall outside the structure of other established U.S. assistance projects. The program is intended to be flexible and allow the Ambassador to respond directly to requests from local communities for assistance with projects that have immediate impact, and further Mission priorities. Equally important, the Special Self-Help program is structured to encourage communities to be self-reliant and undertake similar activities on their own in the future.

There are currently no open funding opportunities for this program. Please monitor this space, our social media sites and for new notices of funding opportunity. For more inquiries about this program, please email:

PEPFAR Small Grants Program

The PEPFAR Coordination Office awards a limited number of grants to non-governmental organizations and other civil society entities in support of human rights for key populations (KPs). The grants advance PEPFAR’s overarching goal of ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic. The U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief, also known as PEPFAR, is U.S. Government’s response to the global AIDS epidemic and represents the largest commitment by any nation to address a single disease in history. Interested parties should please go to the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) below, to view the full NOFO and application instructions.
