DEADLINE EXTENSION: Ambassador’s Special Self-Help Small Grants Program

The U.S. Embassy in Bamako, Mali, has extended the deadline to submit applications for the Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSH) Small Grants Program. Applications are due by Friday, September 11. Please carefully follow all instructions in the Notice of Funding Opportunity (PDF 514 KB).

The Ambassador’s Special Self-Help (SSH) Program is a grassroots grant assistance program that allows U.S. embassies to support local requests for small community-based development projects.  The purpose of the SSH Program is to support communities through modest grants that will have a positive impact on local communities.  Equally important, the SSH Program is structured to encourage communities to be self-reliant and undertake similar community development activities in the future.
