Agency for International Development (USAID), the Bureau for Development, Democracy, and Innovation (DDI), and USAID/Timor-Leste, is announcing the Women and Youth Creating Our Future Addendum to the YouthPower 2 (YP2) Annual Program Statement (APS), hereafter known as the YP2 APS.
Through this Women and Youth Creating Our Future Addendum, USAID/Timor-Leste aims to advance two objectives:
1) build one or more Timorese enterprises operating a sustainable business model capable of implementing development assistance activities, particularly in the areas of increasing formal employment, promoting the establishment and growth of job-creating enterprises, and increasing incomes of young men, young women, and adult women in Timor-Leste; and 2) increase formal employment, promote the establishment and growth of job-creating enterprises, and increase incomes of young men, young women and adult women in Timor-Leste.
As a New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) opportunity, USAID/Timor-Leste also seeks to support partner countries’ progress to self-reliance, achieve sustainable and resilient results, and catalyze more effective partnering for impact.
This Addendum disseminates information to prospective Applicants so they may develop and submit Concept Notes in response and ultimately to be considered for USAID funding.
This Addendum describes and provides:
● The type of activities for which Concept Notes will be considered; ● Available funding, process and requirements for submitting Concept Notes and Full Applications; ● The Criteria for evaluating Concept Notes; and ● Relevant documentation and resources for Prospective Applicants’ reference.
USAID/Timor-Leste anticipates awarding one or more Assistance Award(s) under this Addendum.
Issuance of this Addendum does not constitute an award or commitment on the part of the U. S. Government to make an award, nor does it commit the U. S. Government to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of a Concept Note or Application(s).
The actual number of Assistance Award(s), if any, is subject to the availability of funds, as well as the viability of eventual full Applications received.
Based on the submitted Concept Note(s), USAID/Timor-Leste will determine whether to request a Full Application from the eligible organization(s).
To be competitive under this Addendum to the YP2 APS, Concept Notes and Full Applications must be fully responsive to all directions under the APS except when specifically noted otherwise in this Addendum.
It is the responsibility of the Applicant to ensure that the entire APS and Addendum Opportunity has been downloaded from www.grants.gov and USAID bears no responsibility for data errors resulting from transmission or conversion process.
