The Ambassador’s Fund Grant Program (AFGP) is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and managed by the Trust for Democratic Education and Accountability (TDEA). This five-year program began in October 2017 and will continue until September 2022.
The purpose of the AFGP is to award grants in order to improve the economic and social conditions of the people of Pakistan. The AFGP supports projects focused on the following priority areas:
The AFGP will support grant projects in all provinces and regions of Pakistan, including Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA), Gilgit-Baltistan and Azad Jammu and Kashmir.
There is no deadline for submitting a grant application to the AFGP. Applications will be received and processed on a rolling basis.
Legally registered Pakistani non-governmental organizations (NGOs), women’s organizations, community-based organizations (CBOs), non-government academic research and training institutions, professional and business associations, trade unions, media entities, civic advocacy organizations and civil society networks (if they are legally registered) are eligible to apply. Private sector (for-profit) entities are welcome to apply for grants, but fees (profit) will not be paid under any AFGP grant. Organizations that have not previously received funding from donors or implemented donor-funded projects are welcome to apply for an AFGP grant.
