  • The applicants must provide a copy of the certification of registration and license from the Agency of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE) with the submission package.

  • The following types of organizations may apply for USAID funding under this APS:
    • Eligible Partners: A private voluntary organization (PVO) or cooperative that is, to the extent practicable, registered with the USAID Administrator. Registration is preferred; however, unregistered applicants may apply.
