Small Grants Facility

Through its funding from USAID, The Ghana WASH Project launched a Small Grants Facility, through which it collaborates with Ghana-based organizations and associations to address community challenges facing the water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) sector.

We are currently accepting new applications.  Feel free to contact us for additional details and to submit your application.

The Ghana WASH Project covers underserved rural communities in the Greater Accra, Volta, Central, Western, and Eastern Regions. Through the Small Grants Facility, the Ghana WASH Project endeavors to maximize health benefits among communities where it is already providing support. Innovative, locally-driven WASH solutions and activities in the following categories will be considered for grants:

  • Behaviour change, mobilization and social marketing
  • Civic participation
  • Supply chain strengthening
  • Repair of water and/or sanitation services
  • Management of urban water and sanitation
  • Community monitoring and support
  • Innovative technology solutions for water and/or sanitation
    *Note: During this round of the Small Grants Facility, the project will not support construction of institutional latrine facilities.

The Ghana WASH Project looks forward especially to applications that involve behavior change activities and hygiene education. The Small Grants Facility focuses primarily on the “software” component of water and sanitation—ensuring hygiene education, behavior change and continued function and use of facilities. Grant requests for the provision of “hardware” (e.g. boreholes, latrines, etc) won’t be excluded, but software activities must be integrated into these proposals.
