MOMENTUM (Moving Integrated, Quality Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Family Planning and Reproductive Health Services to Scale)
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.
Closing Date: September 30, 2025
Areas of Interest
In the Yemen Mission Round of the MOMENTUM Annual Program Statement) No. 7200AA19APS00002, USAID is requesting the submission of concept papers focused on Maternal and Child Health, Family Planning, Reproductive Health and Health Systems Strengthening. USAID anticipates issuing one award, as described below, under the Yemen Mission Round.
USAID’s goal for Yemen MOMENTUM is to improve maternal, newborn and child health outcomes.
The critical measure of success for Yemen MOMENTUM is sustained access to and equitable use of evidence-based quality Maternal, Child Health, and Nutrition (MNCHN)/Family Planning (FP)/and Reproductive Health (RH) information, services and/or care and interventions as well as the corresponding capacity of public health institutions, local organizations and providers to deliver evidence based, quality MNCH/FP/RH services and care. Actions taken to ensure the success of the project will include strengthened health service delivery, addressing social factors influencing health and strengthening resilience. These broad actions will contribute to securing results and the overall goal of the project.
The Yemen MOMENTUM Round will aim to expand geographic and service provision focus from the current health portfolio that includes the flagship System Health and Resiliency Project (SHARP) and the Strengthening Family Planning Services (SFPS) in Yemen project. This bridge and expansion from SHARP and SFPS will include targeted Health Systems Strengthening (HSS) including strengthening referral networks for higher levels of Reproductive, Maternal, Newborn, Child Health (RMNCH) care, strengthened district and local level governance and expanded community-based approaches to reach vulnerable populations. The Yemen MOMENTUM Round will leverage SHARP and SFPS results and lessons learned. SHARP’s overall goal to reduce mortality among women of reproductive age, their newborns and children under five as well as increase community health system resiliency will remain core to forthcoming Yemen MOMENTUM Round programming. The Yemen MOMENTUM Round will also build upon the SFPS Project’s goal to ensure communities in Yemen experience improved RH outcomes.
Deadline for Submission of Concept Papers for Yemen Round: July 29th, 2022
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).
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.
