JSI Awarded Two-Year Extension for APC Project
April 3, 2017
We are pleased to announce that USAID has awarded JSI Research and Training (JSI) a two-year extension for the Advancing Partners and Communities project, extending our completion date from October 1, 2017 to September 30, 2019, as well as increasing our ceiling by an additional $41 million on top of our original $210 million award.
The two-year extension will enable JSI and partner FHI 360 to continue our critical work to provide community-based family planning services, training, and other support to underserved communities throughout the world, especially the most marginalized populations.
APC is a 5-year USAID-funded project that advances and supports community programs that seek to improve the overall health of communities and achieve other health-related impacts, especially in relation to family planning. APC provides global leadership for community-based programming, executes and manages small and medium-sized sub-awards, supports procurement reform by preparing awards for execution by USAID, and builds technical capacity of organizations to implement effective programs.
APC helps build the capacity of NGOs in three ways:
- Provides technical assistance to NGOs to support their ability to implement effective community-based programs in all health sector areas, including community-based family planning (CBFP).
- Supports procurement reform by giving grants to NGOs that are carrying out community-based activities.
- Builds the capacity of NGOs to initiate or expand these services.
