Introduction

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is a major source of funds and partnership opportunities for NGOs around the world. USAID offers a significant amount of funding resources for NGOs through grant opportunities and requests for applications. USAID’s funding resources support a wide range of issues areas: agriculture and food security; democracy and human rights; education; global health; environment and global climate change; gender equality; and more.

Despite this, many NGOs often do not apply for funding with USAID because of the complexity and highly competitive nature of the USAID grant system. The funding guidelines can be difficult to understand, instructions are complicated, and the application form can be difficult to follow. But this should not deter NGOs from trying. With some time and effort, it is possible to understand the grant system and apply for USAID grants successfully.

This entry-level webinar will help NGOs identify and apply to USAID request for applications and grant opportunities.

Who can Participate

This course is ideally suited for NGO staff around the world who want to learn more about applying for USAID funding, executive directors/NGO managers who are responsible for donor relations, and, individuals who want to develop their professional skills and effectiveness.

This is an introductory level course focused on the over $30.4 billion in US development assistance, that will provide participants with a solid basic overview. Fundraisers that already have some USAID funding experience can use the course to brush up on their skills and confirm their assumptions.

Please note that the webinar covers USAID, grant programs and development assistance only. This webinar does not cover funding from other departments (e.g. the Department of State, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Department of Labor, etc.).

Methodology

The course will be delivered entirely through the internet. You only need to have a computer, high-speed internet connection and a headphone. Participants from any part of the world can attend it. If you miss the live webinar, you will have access to the webinar recording and the training materials.

The course will consist of a 60 minute presentation where you will see a presentation and hear the trainer, followed by a 30 minute Q&A session during which your questions will be answered by the trainer in real time.

This course is supported by extensive additional materials for participants to use after the course, including access to the webinar video and training materials.
