1) Objective

The United States Agency for International Development in Paraguay (USAID/Paraguay) seeks applications from non-profit and for-profit organizations to participate in USAID/Paraguay’s Local Works Initiative Annual Program Statement (APS). Please note that this is a separate APS specifically targeting Local Works activities. Under Local Works, USAID seeks to support local and non-traditional partners for innovative, adaptive, and locally led development approaches in areas related to health, education, economic opportunities, and community infrastructure.

The Paraguay Local Works Initiative seeks to engage local actors that collectively identify their own development needs, agree on a common agenda and form networks and alliances to achieve that agenda. Grassroots organizations will identify and act on their own needs and take leadership in development processes at the community level as outlined in SECTION H: OTHER INFORMATION. USAID/Paraguay is interested in providing both financial and non-financial support in these areas.

2) Eligibility

USAID/Paraguay is targeting potential local Implementing Partners and local or international Resource Partners, or a combination of the two for the Paraguay Culture of Lawfulness and Local Works Initiative. Implementing Partners must qualify as one of the following: local, locally established, new or underutilized partner.

3) Location

Actions must take place in Paraguay.

4) Budget

The total amount of funding is $8,000,000. Grants may range from $250,000-$2,000,000.

5) Application

This APS requires submission of a 3-page concept paper that answers the questions provided in SECTION D: APPLICATION AND SUBMISSION INFORMATION and follows the template provided in ATTACHMENT 1: CONCEPT PAPER TEMPLATE. Interested organizations must read this document in its entirety and follow the instructions to become involved in this APS. Depending on the response, USAID/Paraguay may make multiple awards or, if there are not sufficiently suitable awards, none. The application deadline is 1 May 2023.
