4 billion usaid funding african countries

The official USAID Business Forecast lists over $4 Billion in new funding for programs to improve health, education, agriculture, and civil society in 20 countries across sub-Saharan Africa.

Over $3 billion in funding was supposed to be issued already, but these solicitations expected release dates have already passed. That’s good news – you can soon bid on them! There is an additional $1 billion in future funding that’s scheduled to be released in the coming months.

The average USAID award will be $40 million dollars over 5 years, and almost every award today has a digital development component. USAID seeks African businesses to bring bold, creative, and innovative approaches to its programs in:

  • Global Health
  • Education
  • Agriculture and Food Security
  • Water and Sanitation
  • Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance
  • Economic Growth and Trade

Those billions don’t even include the $1 billion NextGen Global Health Supply Chain contract for health products. This opportunity will promote locally-managed procurement and supply chain partners in the countries where USAID works.

Win your share of this new business!
