USAID Foreign Assistance for Programs Overseas - #98.001

Funds are authorized through grants and cooperative agreements, primarily with non-governmental U.S. organizations and educational institutions, to carry out activities in line with the Agency's objectives in Sub-Saharan Africa; Asia and the Near East; Latin America and the Caribbean, and Europe and Eurasia. Funds generally are limited for direct support of activities conducted outside the United States in furtherance of the Agency's strategic objectives. The majority of funds for these programs is discretionary, and is generally awarded through a competitive process. Examples of activities that may be funded may be found at

Criteria are defined specifically in the notifications of funding opportunities when they are issued. Generally the technical and organizational criteria are based on potential capacity to efficiently recruit and field volunteers overseas, identify host enterprises in the targeted countries and plan and organize volunteer assignments in to coherent programs that have significant measurable economic impact.
