USAID is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic with decisive action at home and abroad. Our priorities in the COVID-19 response are to protect the safety and health security of our global workforce, ensure that we can continue our life-saving mission across the world, and support partner countries in their response to COVID-19.
To date, USAID has publicly announced $274 million in funding to combat COVID-19. More than $2 billion—which Congress provided to USAID and the State Department in two emergency supplemental appropriations—is being put to work to save lives.

The U.S. Embassy Abuja Public Affairs Section (PAS) is pleased to issue this Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) to support Nigeria’s response against the novel Coronavirus pandemic. This NOFO outlines this funding priority and the procedures for submitting an application. Please carefully read through and follow all instructions below. Implementation of this program remains subject to the approval and availability of funding.
Purpose: PAS seeks to award a limited number of grants to individuals, educational institutions and not-for-profit organizations that are actively working to support Nigeria’s response against COVID 19, either through grassroots effort targeting vulnerable populations, or amplifying government effort in hard to reach areas.
This funding is targeted at projects that have already commenced and not just in the idea phase. Humanitarian assistance, social welfare and construction are not allowed under this funding instrument. Projects must be safe and follow healthcare regulations of the World Health Organization and the Nigeria Center for Disease Control. Applicants are permitted to submit only one proposal per individual/organization.
