The Special Programs to Aid the Needs of Survivors (SPANS) Grants Solicitation and Management (GSM) is an umbrella grant making mechanism which supports service delivery, training and related activities aimed at assisting vulnerable populations. Through a five-year Cooperative Agreement from the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), World Learning supports USAID’s goal of improving the health and well being of specific vulnerable populations, including displaced children and orphans, war victims, people with disabilities, and victims of torture.
On behalf of USAID’s Bureau for Democracy, Conflict, and Humanitarian Assistance, World Learning will award sub-grants in a number of thematic areas such as Displaced Children and Orphan’s Fund (DCOF), Leahy War Victims Fund, People With Disabilities and Wheelchairs Fund, and the Victims of Torture Fund (VWF). World Learning administers the SPANS/GSM grant making process from identifying potential grantees, to soliciting applications, to monitoring project implementation, to close-out.
Over the course of FY 09, World Learning anticipates issuing three Request for Applications (RFA) on behalf of the Wheelchair Fund, DCOF, and LWVF. All RFAs are determined by USAID.
