USAID - Development Grants Program (DGP)

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), through the Development Grants Program (DGP), is inviting applications from Private and Voluntary Organizations based in the United States (U.S. PVOs) and local Non-Governmental Organizations (LNGOs) to foster sustainable grassroots development through the support of local development initiatives and capacity strengthening of these organizations.

The objective of the DGP is to strengthen LNGOs and U.S. PVOs, recognizing that a vibrant and active NGO sector is fundamental to promoting a healthy civil society that is accountable and responsive to citizens’ needs. The DGP is managed in the Office of Innovation and Development Alliances, Local Sustainability Division. The Local Sustainability Division of IDEA works to improve the sustainability of civil society organizations by focusing on supporting innovative local development projects and capacity development.

Subject to the availability of funds, USAID intends to provide up to $45 million in funding via grants and cooperative agreements in amounts up to but not exceeding $2 million for a period of up to five years from the date an agreement is signed. The award ceiling may be lower than the $2 million maximum for specific countries, as noted in the country-specific guidance.

A substantial portion of the total funding will support activities that strengthen the organizational and technical capacities of LNGOs, U.S. PVOs, and key local development partners (including grantees themselves). Appendix 1 lists all country-specific award parameters and requirements. USAID reserves the right to fund any or none of the applications submitted. Applications received after the deadline will not be considered unless the reason for delayed submission is deemed justified or it is in the interest of the Agency to waive this requirement. In the event of such a justification or waiver, all late applications will be treated the same.
