New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) – Global Health

The United States Agency for International Development is announcing the New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) Global Health Annual Program Statement (APS) (known hereafter as NPI GH APS).

Through this APS, USAID announces its desire to engage locally-based new and underutilized partners to expand

and amplify the Agency’s work in the health sector.

The overall Agency NPI seeks to support partner countries’ progress on the Journey to Self-Reliance, achieve sustainable and resilient results, and catalyze more effective partnering for impact.

This APS is designed to support specific Administration and Agency priorities and criteria for new and underutilized partners (NUPs), especially locally-based NUPs.

Individual USAID Missions or Bureaus (also known together as Operating Units) will then request Concept Papers via Rounds as the first step in a three-step process that could result in an award.

For the purposes of the NPI Global Health APS, a “Round” is defined as a specific program description that falls under the larger NPI GH APS goal, purpose, and results but is tailored to a certain focus and/or type of new partnership.

Interested organizations should read this entire APS, as well as any Rounds, and follow the instructions for submitting a Concept Paper.

Applicants should not submit Concept Papers in response to this umbrella APS, but only to Rounds published to this APS.

USAID reserves the right to fund any or none of the concept papers and applications submitted under this APS and its respective Rounds.

USAID reserves the right to close or amend the APS on or before the closing date of September 30, 202 5. Therefore, for each issued Round, organizations are encouraged to apply as soon as possible to be considered for review to maximize the possibility of receiving available funding.

Issuance of this APS does not constitute an award or commitment on the part of the USG, nor does it commit the USG to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of a concept paper or an application.

Pending funding availability, there may be multiple Rounds for this APS that will all aim to meet the Purpose mentioned in Section I.

The financial range for award(s) will be specified in each Round.

As Rounds occur, notifications will be posted on

Please refer to the specific Round documents for detailed information on the concept paper submission guidance including Round points of contact, concept paper requirements, and evaluation criteria for the specific Round.

These Round documents should be located under the "Related Documents" tab in this posting.

For questions on this APS document, please submit all questions to Mrs.

Samantha Pierre via email at by July 22, 2019 at 10 am ET.

For a USAID Mission or USAID/Washington Office wishing to issue a Round under this APS, the program description must fit within Section I of this document.

Please contact Charles “Chuck” Pope ( for review of the Round document - it must be reviewed before being posted publicly under this APS.
