EXTENDED Call for Concept Notes – Comprehensive Capacity Grant

The USAID funded Local Capacity for Local Solutions (LCLS) project is focused on building the managerial, organizational, and administrative capacity of selected non-governmental organizations (NGOs), utilizing innovative methods and approaches to support them in expanding services and improving sustainability in the Eastern and Southern Caribbean (ESC) region. The LCLS project supports the goal of USAID’s Regional Development Cooperation Strategy which is: “Safer, more prosperous Caribbean Communities.” Its development assistance “seeks to: (1) reduce youth involvement in crime and violence; (2) reduce risks and adapt to the impacts of the environment; and (3) achieve epidemic control of HIV/AIDS throughout the region.”

In support of USAID’s development objectives and the focus of the LCLS project, RTI International (the prime recipient of the Local Capacity for Local Solutions award) will issue Comprehensive Capacity Grants with an approximate ceiling value of US$25,000.00 (over a  maximum 12-month period) to NGOs operating in the following sectors: youth/citizen security; HIV/AIDS; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transexual, and intersex (LGBTI); and the environment. The purpose of the Comprehensive Capacity Grants is to strengthen the operational and managerial capacity of NGOs so that they can be more efficient, effective, and sustainable in their operations and better contribute to development goals in their countries. The grant includes a compensation provision that allows for payment to staff for time spent in select grant activities; specifically the application of their skills to  coordinate and lead activities.
