Agency Name

Jordan USAID-Amman


The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Mission in Jordan will shortly be issuing a solicitation seeking assistance applications to implement the Community Engagement Program which is a rapid response community engagement program to address immediate and medium term stressors in communities with the goal to strengthen Jordanian communities to mitigate and resolve tension and instability caused by both domestic volatility and the massive influx of refugees.
The anticipated level of funding for this program is $30,000,000 over a period of three (3) years with possible phases extending the program to five years. The program will focus on two primary components: 1) Mitigate community tensions through increased ability of non-government organizations (NGO), community based organizations (CBO), government authorities, informal actors and communities to peacefully and constructively resolve community stressors; and 2)
Promote positive interaction between displaced Syrians and Jordanian host communities and within Jordanian communities.
