U.S. Embassy in Zambia: Seeking Applications for PEPFAR Small Grants Program

Deadline: 28 February 2018

The U.S. Embassy has announced a new round of funding for the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) Small Grants Program.

HIV prevention small grants assist projects mitigating the spread of HIV. OVC small grants assist with innovative projects that provide care and support to OVC and their households to improve OVC’s standard of living through financially sustainable, community-led projects.
