USAID’s West Bank and Gaza Mission (USAID/WBG) is issuing this Funding Opportunity to solicit applications for Gaza Household WASH (GHW), a three-year Activity.
The goal of Gaza Household WASH Activity (GHW) is to improve human health, environmental health, and livelihoods in vulnerable
communities by increasing access to facilities and services for safe domestic water and improved sanitation.
The activity intends to address the following priorities in Gaza that align with the Coastal Municipalities Water Utility (CMWU) and OCHA’s Humanitarian Rapid Response Plan (2018-2020):
1. The provision of durable solutions to vulnerable communities, such as the establishment, extension or rehabilitation of water distribution networks and sanitation systems at the household and neighborhood levels.
2. Increase emergency WASH preparedness interventions to mitigate and reduce rainwater and sewage flooding risks in vulnerable communities.
The geographic focus of all interventions will be in Gaza, and to the extent possible, in the Access Restricted Areas (ARAs), flood-prone areas, and areas exposed to environmental health risks in Gaza.
