Ambassador’s Small Grants Program

Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Program

The Ambassador’s Special Self Help (ASSH) program is a grassroots 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.

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.

PEPFAR Small Grants Program NOFO

The PEPFAR Coordination Office is accepting proposals for organizations to carry out a Community-Led Monitoring Program (CLM) program.  CLM is a community initiated, client-centered, evidence-based approach to facilitate continuous and convenient access to HIV services for people living with HIV.

PEPFAR’s objectives for the program are; to assess barriers to HIV service access and uptake from the perspectives of people living with HIV (“client”); to evaluate gaps in delivery, which negatively impacts treatment adherence, from the client’s perspective; to identify actionable recommendations and deploy mitigants for needs and gaps identified. To achieve these objectives, PEPFAR is seeking not-for profit organizations with capabilities to work to implement CLM. This would include the capability to monitor HIV service delivery at the health facility level. It would include the capability to routinely and systematically gather crucial information and observations about the quality and accessibility of HIV services from the client’s perspective. It would involve the capacity to work with PEPFAR teams and implementing partners to facilitate joint action that would help to improve the quality and accessibility of HIV services and ultimately the patient experience and patient outcomes. The program advances 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.
