Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

This Annual Program Statement (APS) publicizes the intention of the United States Government (USG), as represented by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Bureau for Global Health (GH), to fund one or multiple awards to address the overarching APS program purpose. The purpose is to accelerate reductions in maternal, newborn, and child mortality and morbidity in high-burden, USAID-supported countries by increasing the capacity of host country institutions and local organizations to introduce, deliver, scale up, and sustain the use of evidence-based, quality maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH), voluntary family planning (FP) and reproductive health (RH) services.

This main APS document outlines the goal, purpose, expected results, and priorities of MOMENTUM (Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health [MNCH/FP/RH] Services to Scale), and may result in multiple awards issued under subsequent APS Rounds. Note: When referencing MOMENTUM in this document, it is referring to the full portfolio of possible awards under this overall purpose. This specific document is an umbrella APS and will not be accepting concept papers or applications.

Please see individual Round documents for each Round’s deadlines and submission instructions for concept papers.

Deadline for Submission of Concept Papers for Round 4: July 17, 2020

In Round 4 of the MOMENTUM Annual Program Statement (APS) No. 7200AA19APS00002, USAID/India is requesting the submission of concept papers focused on efforts to improve maternal, newborn and child health outcomes in India through the implementation of a Maternal Newborn Child Health Accelerator. USAID anticipates issuing 1-3 award(s) under Round 4. Unless otherwise stated herein, all terms and conditions of the MOMENTUM APS apply.

The Maternal Newborn Child Health Accelerator (MNCH Accelerator) will support the Government of India’s (GOI) efforts to improve maternal, newborn and child health outcomes. USAID is seeking new approaches including harnessing innovations to boost the implementation of high-impact interventions to improve maternal, newborn and child health through a continuum of care approach (pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, delivery, postpartum care, and newborn to young children <5 years old care). This activity will implement a health-system strengthening lens from community, to primary health care centers, to secondary and tertiary care facilities. It is USAID’s vision that this new activity will provide tailored targeted technical assistance to health facilities and the outreach systems of care, while also demonstrating innovative practices, or adapting already demonstrated new technologies, commodities or protocols to improve maternal, newborn and child health.

Under Round 4, USAID may issue a single award or multiple awards (1-3 awards) with a combined ceiling up to $13 million. The ceiling does not equate to the actual total award funding; further information will be included in the request for full applications for selected applicants.

At this stage, applicants must submit concept papers as an individual organization only. Consortiums and individual persons may not submit concept papers - such concept papers will not be accepted nor reviewed. Organizations that wish to be considered for funding as a prime under Round 4 must submit a concept paper. Organizations that wish to be sub-awardees can also submit a concept paper if they wish to be evaluated and if successful, invited to co-creation; sub-awardees that did not submit a concept paper (or were unsuccessful) can be added at the full application stage.

Eligibility Requirements

U.S. and non-U.S. public, private, for-profit, and nonprofit organizations, as well as institutions of higher education, public international organizations, and non-governmental organizations, are eligible to submit a concept paper under each Round(s) of the APS. Further, the organization must be a legally-recognized, organizational entity under applicable law, legally registered in a country within the geographic code 937 (“the United States, the recipient country, and developing countries other than advanced developing countries, but excluding any country that is a prohibited source,” per ADS 310.3.1.1). 

Applicants may submit one (1) concept paper as an individual organization (as either a proposed prime or eventual sub-awardee). 

Amount Description

The funding for the Rounds under this APS may be provided through GH offices, as well as USAID mission field support for USAID/W issued Rounds, and direct USAID mission funds for USAID/Mission issued Rounds. As determined by the source of funding, awardee(s) will be expected to comply with the legal and USAID policy requirements that govern the Agency’s programming.

Pending funding availability, there may be multiple Rounds for this APS that will all aim to meet the Purpose and Results mentioned above. The financial range for award(s) will be specified in each Round.
