Request for Applications under USAID/AMANAT Annual Program Statement (APS)

Offered by U.S. Agency for International Development

The purpose of this Annual Program Statement (APS) is to identify and support activities which focus on innovative and targeted activities against corruption, especially corruption that affects public services. The AMANAT project seeks proposals from a wide range of international and Afghan national, regional, and local civil society organizations (CSOs), media organizations, and business associations to implement specific activities that fit within this scope. Proposed projects must target particular corruption problems in creative ways that are likely to produce positive results. Just simply conducting public awareness campaigns or advocacy or oversight efforts are not likely to produce the effective and lasting impacts that AMANAT is seeking. A sample of potential ideas for projects are listed below in this APS on page 14, but organizations are encouraged to propose other activities based on their experience.
