Additional Information of Eligibility:
1.Eligible Applicants: U. S. Non-Governmental non-profit organizations, US Private Voluntary Organizations (USPVOs) and US for profit organizations: U. S. Non-Governmental non-profit and U. S. private for- profit organizations may apply for funding under this NFO.

U. S. potential for-profit applicants should note however that, in accordance with 2 CFR 200.400(g), profit, which is any amount in excess of allowable direct and indirect costs, is not an allowable cost for recipients of USAID awards, and cannot be part of the program budget.

U.S Colleges and Universities: US colleges and universities may apply for funding under this NFO.

USAID generally treats colleges and universities as NGOs, rather than governmental organizations; hence, both public and private colleges and universities are eligible, except public colleges and universities in countries that are ineligible for assistance under the FAA or related appropriations acts.

Please note, however, that this NFO is focused on people-to people programming that addresses divisions within a community and is not intended to fund academic research.

New Partners: USAID welcomes applications from US organizations which have not previously received financial assistance from USAID.

However, resultant awards to these organizations may be delayed because USAID generally must conduct pre-award surveys of these organizations in order to make a risk assessment/responsibility determination.

The eligibility requirement is restricted only to the prime Applicant but not to the sub-awardee which could be a Nicaraguan local organization.


Ineligible Applicants Public International Organizations (PIOs) and International Organizations other than US for the Prime Recipient are ineligible to apply.

USAID will not accept applications from individuals.
