Eligibility :

The following types of organizations are eligible to apply for this APS:

·       U.S. and Non-U.S. Non-Profit Organizations: Qualified U.S. and non-U.S. not-for-profit NGOs may apply for funding under this APS. Foreign government-owned parastatal organizations from countries that are ineligible for assistance under the FAA or related appropriations acts are ineligible.

·       U.S. and Non-U.S. For-Profit Organizations: Qualified U.S. and non-U.S. private for-profit organizations may apply for funding under this APS. Foreign government-owned parastatal organizations from countries that are ineligible for assistance under the FAA or related appropriations acts are ineligible. Potential for-profit applicants should note that, pursuant to 22 CFR 226.81, the payment of fee/profit to the prime recipient under grants and cooperative agreements is prohibited.

·       U.S. and Non-U.S. Colleges and Universities: Qualified U.S. and non-U.S. colleges and universities may apply for funding under this APS. U.S. Government and USAID regulations generally treat colleges and universities as NGOs, rather than governmental organizations; hence, both public and private colleges and universities are eligible. NonU.S. colleges and universities in countries that are ineligible for assistance under the FAA or related appropriations acts are ineligible.

·       Private Voluntary Organizations: A local or indigenous private voluntary organization (PVO), which by definition is a non-U.S. PVO operating in the same foreign country in which it is organized, is eligible to receive funding. Local PVOs are not required to register with USAID. In accordance with 2 CFR 203, a U.S. PVO and an “International PVO,” which by definition is a non-U.S. PVO that performs development work in one or more countries other than the country in which it is domiciled, must be registered with USAID to be eligible to receive funding.

·       Public International Organizations: Public International Organizations are eligible to apply for funding under this APS. Please see Automated Directives Series (ADS) 308 for USAID policy on defining PIOs.

·       New and Underutilized Partners: USAID encourages applications from and partnerships with new and underutilized partners. A “new partner” is defined for purposes of this APS as an organization that has never received direct or indirect awards from USAID. An “underutilized partner” is defined for purposes of this APS as an organization that has received less than $25 million in direct or indirect awards from USAID over the five years preceding the organization’s application to a USAID procurement/funding opportunity.

·       Local Engagement (only applicable for International Organization applicants): International Organizations that apply under this APS must consider local engagement as an effort to promote sustainability. Their concepts must describe strategies that will be employed to sustain the activities beyond USAID funding and contribute to building self-reliance and sustainability.
