Additional Information of Eligibility:

Eligible ApplicantsEligibility for this NOFO is restricted.Eligibility is restricted to Non-U. S. local organizations (see definition below).Local actors are critical players in the global health field.

Engaging with local organizations can double our impact - not just deliver appropriate results but build self-reliant national infectious disease programs using local resources providing a platform for potentially greater opportunity to exist long after LEAP has ended.

Additionally, LEAP-Local will facilitate a linkage between local technical expertise and a recognized human resource gapwithin the infectious disease portfolios at the national health entities.

By targeting local entities in USAID focus countries, to provide expertise as the prime partner solutions will be locally driven with local priorities being central to an inclusive country-driven programmatic approach.

The technical assistance will be able to engage in a meaningful, culturally appropriate, local solution driven and technically sound approach that permits continuous direct mentoring and quality improvements within the national health entity.
