Project: Municipal Waste Recycling Program (MWRP)
The purpose of this Annual Program Statement (APS) is to solicit grant applications for funding available through the Municipal Waste Recycling Program (MWRP) from organizations in Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. The Development Innovations Group (DIG), which administers the program on behalf of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is seeking prospective non-governmental partners, such as civil society organizations, youth-led or women-led organizations, private sector companies, associations, cooperatives, and academic institutions, that can implement municipal waste recycling solutions with a focus on reducing plastics pollution of the marine environment in Indonesia, the Philippines, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam.
Applicant organizations may propose either starting up or scaling up existing initiatives that provide promising approaches to reduce the amount of plastics entering marine environments. The MWRP has a strong interest in receiving proposals that promote innovative approaches or technologies, and effectively engage underrepresented groups (women, youth, informal waste pickers) as partners. Grant recipients will be expected to share evaluation results and key lessons learned, as well as disseminate periodic information on their activities and outcomes with the broader community engaged with these issues.
Submission Dates: Grant applications, submitted either as an organization’s entry point into the MWRP awarding process or as the result of a successfully-reviewed concept note, will be accepted on a rolling basis. An applicant may submit a concept note at any time.
The deadlines for submitting applications are:
March 31, 2018 – Closed
June 30, 2018
September 30, 2018 (if funds are still available)
December 31, 2018 (if funds are still available)
