Presentation

The United States Ambassador’s Small Grants program (ASG) provides one-time small grants to community development programs that improve the socio-economic wellbeing and/or health of the community.  The ASG Program is designed to support communities’ own efforts and initiatives.  Funding under the ASG Program is provided by the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR).  Under the ASG, projects must originate in the community and the community members need to make significant contributions to the project, such as land, labor, funds, materials, ongoing supervision, and other resources.  U.S. Mission contributions to any one project ranges from $3,000 to $10,000. Smaller requests are also welcome.
