Where Can I Find USAID Contract and Grant Resources?

USAID announced plans to fund almost $300 million in new aid programs in Afghanistan over the next five years. This article gives readers information about how they might be eligible to participate in these and other US government programs as a grant recipient or contractor.

USAID’s website here provides a detailed review of its grant and contracting process, from project design to solicitation to award.

USAID posts its contract solicitations on the Federal Business Opportunities website, otherwise known as FedBizOpps (www.fbo.gov). USAID posts its grant opportunities on the federal grant site here (www.grants.gov).  These sites list contracting and grant opportunities for USAID, and for all of the US federal government.

On the grant and contract sites you can search for projects by country, by subject, by government agency and a variety of other filters.

Of interest to many of our readers, USAID has pages dedicated to small businesses that are new to US government grant and contract programs and are interested in partnering with USAID. On this site, USAID links to a variety of resources discussing a mentor/protégé program, subcontracting options, and a listing of grant and contract opportunities geared towards smaller companies.

If you are interested in becoming a USAID grantee or contractor, we encourage you to thoroughly read USAID’s site to learn about the opportunities that exist.

If you are a US government contractor or grant recipient who has questions about your legal rights, we offer a free initial case review. For more information about the legal services we offer contractors and grantees, please see our Legal Services page here or email us at atty@vkvlaw.com.

In this blog we will from time-to-time post resources we hope you will find helpful in your pursuit of government contracts.

In this post, we feature the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) resource websites. The DOD has created an office dedicated to assisting small business owners that are interested in working with the U.S. government.

Of interest is this snapshot of basic information on contracting with the government. This handy two-page sheet identifies the contract types, the relevant legal resources, the basic contracting process, and websites where a prospective contractor can research contract opportunities.
