U.S. AMBASSADOR’S SMALL GRANTS PROGRAM

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 help themselves.  Funding under the ASG Program is largely provided by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and by the U.S. Department of State Self-Help.  Under the ASG, projects must originate in the community, and the community members need to make significant contributions to the success of the project, such as land, labor, funds, materials, ongoing supervision, and other resources.  American contribution to any one project ranges from $3,000 to $10,000. Smaller requests are also welcome.

Currently, the ASG funds projects in two categories: projects that specifically target care for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS and other vulnerable children and projects that support community development in the larger community.
