The programmatic needs of USAID for construction related grants under SGAFP have been met. Therefore, SGAFP will not entertain any new application that involves construction of any type. As per USAID regulations, ‘Construction’ is defined as “construction, alteration, or repair (including grudging and excavation) of buildings, structures, or other real property and includes, without limitation, improvements, renovation, alteration and refurbishment. The term includes, without limitation, roads, power plants, buildings, bridges, water treatment facilities, and vertical structures”. The applicant organizations may continue to submit fresh applications that do not involve any construction related activity.
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 Small Grants fund has awarded 102 grants under the thematic areas of Economic Growth, Education, Let Girls Learn, Energy, Health, Civic Participation and Governance across Pakistan and has benefited around 750,000 people.
