Scale-Up of Care and Support Services for Orphans and Vulnerable Children in Nigeria
Page 2

The USAID Nigeria will enter into umbrella cooperative agreements and will award funds amounting to $65,000,000 within five years.

The objective of this program is to:

a) Improve and strengthen the institutional and technical capacity of state and local governments in an effort to help them provide, manage and monitor holistic and integrated care to orphans and vulnerable children, as well as their families.

b)Strengthen and improve the organizational and technical capacity of civil societies in managing OVC programs.

c) Increasing caregivers' access to Household Economic Strengthening Resources

d) Ultimately, increasing OVC households' access to nutrition and food security resources.

The program will only take effect in selected Nigerian states including Sokoto, Kano, Kaduna, Bauchi, Plateau, FCT, Nassara, Kogi, Benue and Edo.

The USAID office in Nigeria has stressed that recipients of the grant will not be directly responsible implementing program activities, instead, they will be in charge of grant management activities such as the issuance of sub-grants and the development of organizational and technical capacity for grantees and sub-grantees who are mainly responsible for implementing the OVC programs.

This funding opportunity is exclusively for US or non-US non-governmental organizations, private voluntary organizations, for-profit companies who will be willing to forego profit, institutions of higher education such as colleges and universities, and faith-based and community organizations.
