Annual Program Statement: Collaborative Actions / Declaración Anual del Programa: Acciones Colaborativas
December 2022 — The Strengthening Together Activity (STA)/SUMA SOCIAL PROGRAM is a project funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by FHI 360. Its purpose is to improve the performance of USAID/Colombia’s local partner (LP) development impact by improving key aspects of LPs’ organizational capacities, and the broader ecosystems in which they operate, through an individualized and collaborative technical assistance process. Additionally, STA/SUMA SOCIAL will support LPs to internalize collaborating, learning and adapting (CLA) approaches for their current and future programming. The program will also strengthen LPs’ communication practices for social and behavior change.
Through this Annual Program Statement (APS), STA/SUMA SOCIAL will award Challenge Grants to consortiums of civil society organizations (CSOs) and/or groups of organizations participating in the program’s Collaborative Action Circles that propose projects that best respond to the common challenges and objectives identified by CSOs in the Whole System in the Room event.
The APS, a Concept Note Template (Plantilla de Nota Conceptual) and a Budget Note Template (Plantilla de Presupuesto) are available here for download. Applications should be emailed to [email protected] and will be open from December 5, 2022, to December 4, 2023.
