Donor Name: The United States Agency for International Development in Bangladesh (USAID)
Funding name: YouthPower Action: Integrated Workforce Development and Sexual and Reproductive Health Activity Fund
RFA No. 102074 RFA_003
Funding brief: The goal of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to build evidence on what works in youth integrated, cross-sectoral programming to achieve better Workforce Development (WfD) and Sexual and Reproductive Health (SRH) outcomes. This RFA builds on recent research conducted by YouthPower Action that assessed programs that integrated SRH and WfD. The research identified key features of effective integrated programs which was used to develop a theory of change. This RFA solicits applications from prospective applicants to implement a youth program consistent with that theory of change that can be compared to single sector approaches. YouthPower Action will conduct impact and process evaluations of the winning grant program(s) to help USAID understand whether there is a higher return on investment (e.g. in terms of SRH and WfD outcomes) by implementing integrated programs relative to a single sector focus.
This RFA is issued as a public notice to ensure that all interested, qualified and eligible US and Non-US organizations legally registered for business have a fair opportunity to submit applications for funding.
Deadline: August 10, 2017; by17:00 hours (EST).
