Apply for PEPFAR Zambia Small Grants Program


The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce a new round of funding for the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Zambia Small Grants Program.

The PEPFAR Small Grants Program is highly open competition funding which supports projects in three thematic areas: HIV prevention, care for children and Adolescents and Young People (AYP), and projects that promote key and priority population education, treatment, and adherence in Zambia’s HIV response.

Organizations funded through the PEPFAR Small Grants Program must be providing one or more of the following services:

  • HIV prevention that includes targeted evidence-based prevention programs. Prevention programs may focus on one or more of the following categories:

    • HIV prevention and sexual violence

    • Norms and behavior change

    • Key and Priority Populations

    • Gender based violence (GBV) and post-GBV care services

  • Evidence-based means that the program uses a specific curriculum, implementation is monitored and can be measured, and the program has been proven to yield positive results.

  • Targeted HIV Case Finding Services with the aim of identifying and newly testing, newly linking or re-linking individuals to anti-retroviral treatment (ART). These will include identification, linkage, retention in care, with a focus on reaching key and priority populations, children and Adolescents and Young People (AYP).

  • Community-based Care and Support – Service delivery specifically for people living with HIV (PLHIV), including children and Adolescents and Young People affected by and living with HIV as well as key and priority populations. This includes activities such as case management adherence clubs, psychological support services, tracking and tracing people who experience treatment interruption or are not virologically suppressed.

  • The PEPFAR Small Grants Program will fund programmatic costs associated with these activities. These include supplies/materials, transport, equipment, training related to program implementation, and/or administration in the context of the above activities. Successful implementation of these activities may also require building the capacity of recipient organizations in areas such as monitoring and evaluation and case management.
