USAID Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance – NGO Emergency Applications 

Type of project:  BHA’s mission is to save lives, alleviate human suffering, and reduce the impact of disasters by helping people in need become more self-reliant. NGOs may apply for non-competitive, emergency awards for urgent response, early recovery, and disaster risk reduction programming. Prior to beginning an application, you should contact BHA field-based staff or headquarters staff (for global activities or for countries with no BHA in-country representation) to discuss your intended approach and your interest in submitting an application. A list of BHA’s regional contacts is available on the USAID website. Consider submitting a Concept Paper first. Although not required, you may find it useful to discuss a brief Concept Paper with BHA staff before you undertake a full application. See Concept Papers for more information.
