  • Government of Ethiopia (GOE) law requires prior registration of a foreign or local organization in order to implement programs or conduct any business in Ethiopia.
  • 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.
  • Local registration is not a requirement at the time of application, but it is required prior to start of implementation of the program.
  • 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.
      • A PVO is a U.S. private voluntary organization, international private voluntary organization or a local private voluntary organization and as described in the Private Voluntary Organization Conditions of Registration on the USAID website.
      • A PVO includes U.S. and non-U.S. nonprofit, non-governmental organizations (NGOs): (a) as defined in Section 402 of the Food for Peace Act; (b) as described in the PVO Conditions of Registration on the USAID website; and (c) in accordance with ADS 303.
