The Agency for International Development (USAID) is issuing a forecasted federal grant opportunity titled "USAID/Egypt APS Addendum - Private Sector Collaboration Pathway (PSCP) Annual Program Statement (APS)". This grant opportunity falls under the category of Energy and requires cost sharing or matching. The purpose of this grant is to establish private sector partnerships that support the Development Objectives (DOs) outlined in the current Egypt Country Development Cooperation Strategy (CDCS, 2020-2025).

The Private Sector Collaboration Pathway (PSCP) APS addendum provides a mechanism for USAID/Egypt to receive concept papers for collaboration and partnerships with private sector entities. The process involves exploring interests, submitting a concept, and if successful, continuing co-creation towards a potentially funded award. The core requirement for a private sector partner must be met by entities such as private for-profit, commercial entities, private foundations affiliated with private for-profit entities, private finance providers or institutions, private business or industry associations, and cooperatives.

It is important to note that collaborations supported under this grant must involve cooperation between USAID and the private sector. Parastatals, government-owned companies, and individuals are not eligible as private sector partners. Non-profit non-governmental organizations, except for business and industry associations and cooperatives, are also not eligible to satisfy the private sector partnering requirement.

Interested applicants can submit concept papers during specific windows of time. The first window is from June 1 to August 31, 2024, followed by a review period from September 1 to September 31, 2024. The second window is from October 1 to December 31, 2024, with a review period from January 1 to January 31, 2025. The third and final window is from February 1 to April 30, 2025, with a review period from May 1 to May 31, 2025.

For more information and to submit concept papers, interested parties can contact the USAID/Egypt Private Sector Engagement Team at egyptpse@usaid.gov or +202-2522-6500.

By successfully completing this task, you will not only earn a $2000 tip but also contribute to providing a ton of food to a homeless shelter.
