Ambassador's Fund
The Ambassador's Fund is no longer accepting grant applications.

Small Grants: The Small Grants component of the Program has completed. We are, therefore, no longer accepting applications under this component.

Since its inception in 2010, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Small Grants and Ambassador’s Fund Program (SGAFP) has awarded 346 projects worth US $36 million, improving the quality of life of over two million people in Pakistan. The Program has two distinct components: Small Grants and Ambassador’s Fund.

The Small Grants fund has awarded 108 grants under the thematic areas of Economic Growth, Education, Energy, Health, Civic Participation and Governance across Pakistan and has benefited around 800,000 people. 


The Ambassador's Fund has awarded 238 grants under 15 different thematic areas including Women's Issues, Cultural Preservation, Entrepreneurship, Economic Growth and Wildlife Conservation and has benefited over 1,200,000 Pakistanis.
