Pact, a leader in building the capacity of non-government organizations, networks, and intermediary organizations, is pleased to announce the release of a request for applications (RFA) for funding provided to support Pact’s implementation of USAID/ENGAGE Activity to Enhance Non-Governmental Actors and Grassroots Engagement (USAID award AID 121-A-16-00011). The purpose of USAID/ENGAGE is to increase citizen awareness of and engagement in civic activities at the national, regional, and local level.
This RFA is issued as a public notice to ensure that all interested, qualified, and eligible organizations have a fair opportunity to submit applications for funding. For the purposes of this RFA, “organizations” are defined as non-governmental organizations (NGOs), civil society organizations (CSOs), community-based organizations (CBOs), or faith-based organizations (FBOs).
USAID/ENGAGE will award support through the Stability Fund to shore up CSOs’ financial support for advocacy efforts through a mechanism that can be expanded upon and adapted as domestic contextual considerations permit. The Fund addresses current needs due to the extraordinary impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, while laying the groundwork for a longer-term funding mechanism to support advocacy efforts in Ukraine.
