USAID/Nigeria seeking Applications for Small Town WASH Activity

Deadline: 14 May 2019

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID/Nigeria) is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement from qualified entities to implement the “Small Town WASH Activity” program.

The goal of this Activity is to facilitate the economic recovery of select crisis-affected communities. The purpose is to bolster the three state governments’ capacities to create and sustain enabling environments for the STWSSAs and WCA operators, and for these service provision agencies to increase their capacities to sustainably provide essential WASH services.

This Activity will:

  • increase access to water and sanitation services in order to reduce illnesses and child mortality, and to sustain health outcomes; and
  • Strengthen local WASH institutions including STWSSAs and WCAs to sustain WASH services.

The goal of this Activity will be achieved by:

  • building/rehabilitating water and sanitation infrastructure that has been damaged or vandalized to provide access to approximately 250,000 people ;
  • building the capacity of local institutions (government and non-governmental organizations) in the WASH sector to deliver WASH services to communities;
  • developing a management model with a framework to address key management elements such as asset ownership, performance monitoring, cost recovery, maintenance, and water operator regulations; and
  • promoting the integration of women in decision making processes and management frameworks;
