The United States Agency for International Development (USAID)/Indonesia is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement the Kolaborasi: Papua Collaborative Governance Initiative program. Kolaborasi is expected to provide capacity building to citizen groups and local governments and deliver grants to sub-national Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) to promote reform in targeted districts in Papua. Kolaborasi will facilitate citizens' ability to advance their priorities and actively conduct oversight of local government processes and operations. This activity will: improve local government transparency and responsiveness in delivering public services; increase local government capacity in managing resources, planning, and budgeting; and advance citizen engagement, particularly indigenous Papuan, in local development processes. Additionally, Kolaborasi will foster the dissemination and adoption of innovative models in citizen engagement and collaborative governance replicable in the Papuan context.
Eligibility for this award is not restricted. Eligible parties interested in submitting an application are encouraged to read this NOFO thoroughly to understand the type of program sought, application submission requirements and selection process. USAID intends to make an award to the applicant who best meets the objectives of this funding opportunity based on the merit review criteria described in this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) subject to a risk assessment.
