1) Objective

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement the Youth Actively Create Opportunities (YACO). The purpose of the planned activity is to increase positive youth contributions to society and collective youth leadership through creating partnerships in support of economic opportunities attractive to youth; strengthening youths’ competencies for jobs, progressive careers and civic life; and promoting values and experiences that underpin self-reliance, such as responsibility, independence, lawfulness, strong ethics, civic engagement, and striving for accomplishment.

USAID intends to make one award to the applicant who best meets the objectives of this funding opportunity based on the merit review criteria described in this NOFO subject to a risk assessment. Eligible parties interested in submitting an application are encouraged to read this NOFO thoroughly to understand the type of program sought, application submission requirements and the selection process.

2) Eligibility

Although full and open competition is foreseen, and to ensure local ownership and full sustainability, preference will be given to applications that demonstrate the creation or utilization of partnerships and/or alliances with one or more capable and experienced local implementing partners, and that substantial segments of the work will be carried out by these local organizations.

3) Location

Actions must take place in North Macedonia.

4) Budget

USAID intends to award one Cooperative Agreement pursuant to this notice of funding opportunity. Subject to funding availability and at the discretion of the Agency, USAID intends to provide $7,000,000 in total USAID funding over a five year period.

5) Application

The application deadline is 15 September 2022. A full proposal needs to be submitted.
