Program Description:

The U.S. Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya and the U.S. Department of State announces an open competition for Kenyan organizations to submit applications to carry out projects related to HIV.  Please follow all instructions below.


Program Objectives:

The PEPFAR Community Grants Program (PCGP) seeks to award grants to projects that implement innovative solutions that further PEPFAR’s commitment to reducing HIV infections and providing equitable, inclusive access to treatment. We aim to achieve this by infusing new thinking and approaches into program designs that are responsive to community prevention and treatment needs, developing capacity for community engagement in democracy and governance to ultimately strengthen the national HIV response, and addressing stigma and discrimination impacting equitable access to comprehensive services for HIV affected populations. Targeted beneficiaries of proposed projects should include key and priority populations most impacted by HIV/AIDS.  Examples include– but are not limited to–key populations (KPs), priority populations like adolescent girls and young women (AGYW), persons living with disabilities (PLWDs), people living with HIV (PLHIV), and orphans and vulnerable children (OVC).


Participants and Audiences:

PCGP welcomes applications from registered non-profit Kenyan organizations such as community-based organizations (CBOs), faith-based organizations (FBOs), civil society organizations (CSOs)–especially those led by key populations (KPs), youth and/or adolescent girls and young women (AGYW)—and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to apply for these funds.

  • Potential grantees experience in implementing and sustaining programs that promote HIV/AIDS prevention activities; and/or
  • The potential grantees capacity to measure the results and impact of the project.
