People-To-People (P2P) Reconciliation Fund

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The US Agency for International Development (USAID) is issuing this Annual Program Statement (APS) pursuant to the Foreign Assistance Act (FAA) of 1961, as amended. The Agency will administer any resulting awards in accordance with Parts 200 and 700 of Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards; Standard Provisions for US/Non-US Organizations; as well as the additional requirements in this APS and any Rounds. The Office of Conflict Management and Mitigation (CMM) in the Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance is pleased to announce this PeopleTo-People (P2P) Reconciliation Fund APS (known hereafter as P2P APS).

Through the P2P APS, USAID announces its desire to engage in a diverse range of partnerships, including with new and underutilized development actors (namely local and locally established organizations) to expand and amplify the Agency’s work in the peacebuilding sector. This APS is designed to support specific Administration and Agency priorities in conflict prevention, mitigation, management and peacebuilding.

The P2P APS is not a Request for Applications (RFA) or a Request for Proposals (RFP). Rather, the P2P APS requests Concept Papers in response to Rounds published to this APS. Based on the review of those Concept Papers led by a USAID team, USAID will determine whether to request a full Application from the successful applicants. To be competitive in a particular Round, applications must be fully responsive to all directions under this APS as well as any additional directions detailed in the Round. 

The FY 2019 P2P APS process may include up to three (3) funded Rounds under the P2P APS. Unless otherwise stated, select USAID Missions may participate in only one (1) Round, and CMM may fund only one (1) award per fiscal year.
