Гранты USAID по укреплению устойчивости неблагополучных семей

Under theInvesting in Resilient Families and Communities Round, USAID/GH is seeking Concept Papers that incorporate interventions that will build upon and expand USAID’s efforts to strengthen the resilience of disadvantaged families, increase families’ and communities’ ability to mitigate, adapt to and recover from potential external shocks and stressors, and increase the capacity of existing health institutions to provide care to families in developing countries including those in hard to reach areas.

USAID is seeking to support applicants via partnerships as defined under Section III of this Addendum. A larger and more diverse partner base will expand the available ideas, capabilities, capacity and networks needed to address challenges to family and community resilience sustainably.

USAID encourages local and global partnerships with the private sector and civil society, including faith-based and community-based organizations, and in particular new and underutilized partners, capable of deploying (or integrating) activities and innovations to enhance family resilience, to submit concept papers. Such activities and innovations could, for example, include education, training, mentoring, support, technology, health supplies and commodities, equipment and products which could serve as tools to accomplish the following:

·        Build resilience through supporting families to achieve the healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy;

·        Build resilience through strengthened relationships between married and unmarried couples for better health outcomes;

·        Build resilience through enabling families to take ownership of their own health and reduce their vulnerability; and,

·        Increase the capacity of public and private health networks to serve them.

Technical Focus of the Investing in Resilient Families and Communities Round:

USAID’s GH Bureau seeks partnerships with non-governmental organizations (NGOs), such as civil-society, private-sector and faith-based organizations, consortia, academia, diaspora groups, social enterprises, national and international NGOs, health networks, health facilities and networks, etc., that meet the eligibility criteria listed in Section III , and that can mobilize local and community assets and resources to sustain and scale promising and/or proven approaches to strengthening family resilience.

·        Helping to build family resilience and decreasing risk for vulnerability, including through helping families improve and supporting those in situations of vulnerability (especially those with disabilities, children at risk for adverse health and development outcomes [e.g. preterm and small-size-for-gestational age infants, malnourished children, those experiencing recurrent infection or health problems], chronic conditions, mental health concerns, etc.)
