USAID: Responding to Pakistan’s Internally Displaced (RAPID) III

Now Funding Agencies will be at your Fingertips

Deadline: 29 November 2017

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications from qualified U.S. and Non-U.S. organizations to fund a program entitled Responding to Pakistan’s Internally Displaced III (RAPID III).

USAID/OFDA responds to all types of foreign natural disasters, including earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, cyclones, floods, droughts, fires, pest infestations, and disease outbreaks. USAID/OFDA also provides assistance when lives or livelihoods are threatened by catastrophes such as civil conflict, acts of terrorism, or industrial accidents. Disasters cause loss of life or injury, damage to private or public infrastructure, and interruption of livelihoods. Foreign disasters comprise both acts of nature and acts of humankind that disrupt economic and social life. USAID defines a foreign disaster as one that occurs outside the United States, its territories, or possessions. A foreign disaster may be:

  • A violent act of nature, such as a flood, tsunami, hurricane, fire, earthquake, volcanic eruption, landslide, etc.;
  • Secondary disasters, such as floods, landslides, fires, or civil disturbances that may be triggered by rapid-onset disasters such as earthquakes or hurricanes;
  • A human-caused act, such as civil strife, border conflict, displacement of large numbers of people, explosion, fire, chemical spill, or radiological release;
  • A complex emergency, usually of long-term duration, that includes a combination of humanitarian, political, and military dimensions that hinder the provision of external relief;
  • A slowly developing catastrophe caused by nature, humankind’s neglect, or both, such as drought, famine, or epidemic; or
  • A potential calamity, including ecological threats menacing lives and property and requiring prevention or monitoring measures.


  • Through small scale, short-term grants, support local and international nongovernment organizations (NGOs) in responding to emergency needs throughout Pakistan. The framework created will support quick impact, proven responses to emergency situations appropriate to needs identified immediately after the occurrence of a natural disaster, or as the result of new or ongoing displacement due to conflict. It will be flexible and responsive to changing needs.
  • Strengthen the technical, management, and programmatic skills of local nongovernmental organizations, as well as local disaster management authorities, to increase the quality of their internal operations and their standards of work on the ground.
