Agency Name: U.S. Mission to South Africa


The U.S. Embassy South Africa Public Affairs Section, U.S. Department of State (PAS) is pleased to announce a call for proposals for a grantee to manage between 20 and 40 small grant on behalf of the U.S. Embassy. Activities will include developing a small grant application process, overseeing application submissions, conducting outreach and networking with prospective partner organizations, and coordinating a review process and schedule. All activities will be conducted in close coordination with PAS. For approved small grants, the grantee will enter into sub-award agreements, oversee the transfer of funds, and monitor and evaluate the small grants though their project lifecycles. It is anticipated that the 20 – 40 awards will vary in amount, and in geographic reach, with most in the $3,000 - $8,000 range. As a Cooperative Agreement, PAS will be substantially involved in the program activities, to include the selection process. PAS seeks a partner with capacity to work at the national level, but will consider multiple awards if a single grantee cannot work with sub-grantees in all geographic areas.
