The U.S. Department of State, through the U.S. Embassy in Harare, announces an open competition for organizations to submit applications to carry out a small, community-based development program.
Sponsoring Agency: PEPFAR
Type of Fund: Grant
Deadline: 01/04/2022 (January 4, 2022)
The Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSH) Program awards grants to registered non-governmental, non-profit, community-based organizations to implement short-term (12-month), small-scale (between $2,500 and $8,000) development projects that include significant community involvement. Priority consideration is given to income generating projects that improve basic economic or social conditions at the village level. SSH supports projects in Zimbabwe with an average of $2,500 to $8,000 per project.
The SSH Program receives hundreds of applications for funding each year. All submissions are reviewed in a competitive and transparent manner. However, given the limited funding available through the SSH Program, we can only fund a small number of projects each year.
The applicant must be a Zimbabwe registered non-governmental, non-profit, or community-based organization. Registered trusts, associations, schools, churches, etc. meet this eligibility requirement. Individuals, businesses, and government entities do NOT qualify. All applications must include and identify a significant community contribution (cash, labor, and/or materials). The beneficiary members must be Zimbabwean citizens. Applicants must display sound management in the form of financial and administrative procedures that protect against fraud, waste, and abuse.
