Small Grants


The Small Grants fund is a noteworthy funding opportunity for civil society organizations in Pakistan to implement initiatives that are in line with USAID's objectives for Pakistan.

Current Thematic Areas
Currently USAID’s Small Grants program provides grants of up to US $200,000 under the theme of Let Girls Learn (Education) and  Civic Participation for projects lasting for up to one year to Pakistani organizations. Geographically focusing on Punjab, Sindh, Balochistan, and Khyber Pukhtunkhwa province, the program is designed to fund innovative activities that promote USAID’s development objectives that may not necessarily fit into existing U.S. government programs.
