Announcement for Grant Opportunities
USAID Improved Access to Safe Drinking Water in Liberia Activity
The USAID Improved Access to Safe Drinking Water in Liberia Activity (“the Activity”), implemented by Winrock International and its partners WaterAid and FEI Consulting, is releasing the Annual Program Statement (APS-10013-23-APS01) and inviting interested organizations to apply for grants under contract. This call aims to solicit concept notes and applications from prospective grantees to support Winrock International (“Winrock”) in implementing the Improved Access to Safe Drinking Water in Liberia Activity. The Activity supports the Government of Liberia (GOL) in improving the delivery of safe drinking water services. It aims to move Liberians in Montserrado and Margibi Counties to a basic level of safe drinking water services by strengthening water sector governance, creating scalable models for equitable water service delivery, and promoting and adopting key water use behaviors among the target households. Winrock and its partners collaborate with Liberian government institutions at the national, county, and local levels to implement a vision where all Liberians can access, use, and demand safe, sustainable water services.
The objective of this Annual Program Statement is to call for interested and capable local private for-profit organizations, Water Service Providers and aspirants, community-based enterprises, Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Community Water Committees (CWCs), and National and Local Government Institutions to apply for the Grants Under Contract (“Grant”) of the Activity. The Grant aims to incentivize improved water sector governance and service provision and leverage local organizations for SBC campaigns and advocacy. It will serve as a mechanism for instilling a performance optimization culture within LGIs, CWCs, and WSPs.
The Grants’ activities will commence in 2024 and may continue through June 2027. Applicants can apply for multi-year phased grants that focus on supporting the implementation of activities across the three objectives of the Activity indicated in the total APS.
