Deadline: 31 January 2017
The UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) is currently seeking applications for Subsidised Temporary Employment Programme (STEP).
STEP aims to incentivise small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to expand production and create new permanent jobs for low-skilled Lebanese workers as well as temporary jobs for Syrian refugees.
STEP is expected to achieve this through the provision of capital incentives (i.e. matching grants) and potentially additional wage subsidies and business development services. An additional component, critical to Lebanese Government support for the programme, is the creation of savings accounts for Syrian workers, accessible on leaving Lebanon.
How to Apply
Interested applicants must apply using DFID supplier portal.
Eligible Countries: Lebanon, Syria and UK
