OPPORTUNITY: Catalytic Funding Facility

The USAID Africa Trade and Investment program is designed to bolster the U.S. Government’s ability to boost trade and investment to, from, and within the African continent. The continent-wide program is USAID’s flagship effort in support of the Prosper Africa initiative and will expand and accelerate two-way trade and investment between African nations and the United States. The program has an open Notice for Funding Opportunity.

Through the funding opportunity, the program is inviting concepts under the Prosper Africa Catalytic Funding Facility. This opportunity offers $250,000 to $1,000,000 in grant capital to funds and other organizations that can utilize catalytic funding to reduce risk, build track records, and scale financial offerings to businesses in sub-Saharan Africa.
