Grant Number

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) is seeking applications for funding from qualified entities to implement programming and activities for Transforming the International Humanitarian Data Ecosystem.

BHA is soliciting applications to support programs that strengthen the humanitarian data ecosystem, which encompasses three pillars — People, Process, and Technology. Humanitarians require high-quality, real-time, diagnostic and predictive analysis that fosters understanding of needs and prioritization of assistance in often rapidly changing and resource and access constrained environments. Strengthening the humanitarian data ecosystem will give BHA and other actors the tools to respond to complex crises, and address priority issues such as protection challenges; the effects of climate change; diversity, equity, and inclusion; and strengthening early warning systems. To achieve this, critical gaps in the infrastructure, skills, tools, policies, standards, and capacities needed to answer basic questions about current and future humanitarian needs must be addressed.

For this round of the APS, applicants can apply to:

● Pillar 1: People - Objective 1.1: Humanitarian workforce development

● Pillar 3: Technology - Objective 3.1: Data technology standards

For the first round of applications, BHA will consider applications focused on one or both objectives. Should an applicant wish to submit an application for both objectives, they must submit their application through one application and not two separate applications. The Prime applicant for both objectives may only submit or be part of one application during the first round of applications. If an applicant is submitting an application as a Prime for one objective only, it may only apply for the other objective through another application as a sub-awardee. BHA anticipates that the total amount of each award will not exceed $3 million over a three-year period of performance. Interested applicants may submit applications for lesser amounts.

Any questions concerning the first round of applications for this APS, its appendices, technical references, must be submitted in writing by May 6, 2022 to
