Call for Proposals: Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSH) Program – SSH Fund 2024

The Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSH) Program awards grants to registered non-governmental, non-profit, community-based organizations to implement short-term (12-month), small-scale (between $8,000 and $15,000) development projects that include significant community involvement. Priority consideration is given to income generating projects that improve basic economic or social conditions at the village level. Project activities and spending should be completed within 12 months with an anticipated start date between September 1 and September 30, 2024, depending on when funding is made available. The SSH Program receives hundreds of applications for funding each year.  All submissions are reviewed in a competitive and transparent manner.  However, given the limited funding available through the SSH Program, we can only fund a small number of projects each year.
