About the Grant:

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is accepting applications for the TIFA to issue a maximum of two cooperative agreements. It will develop and manage partnerships with local government entities, and other local partners, to implement locally generated solutions to improve TB services in USAID priority countries. The overarching goal for TIFA is to strengthen and sustain country ownership and accountability. TIFA has an award ceiling of USD 300,000,000.

TIFA FAAs will aim to support the USG Global TB Strategy, the WHO END TB Strategy, and the Global Plan to Stop TB, and to empower countries to reach their UNGA HLM targets. All TIFA activities will emphasize consistent and effective utilization of data for purposes of design, adaptation, quality assurance, context-appropriate milestones, and development of future National TB Strategic Plans, with particular attention to improving transparency, access to data, and application of evidence-based practices among practitioners and decision makers at country, regional, and global levels. TIFA will significantly contribute to USAID’s Global Health (GH) strategic health priority of “combating infectious diseases.”

  • To achieve effective and efficient mechanisms for direct support to National TB Programs and local government entities to effectively implement National TB Strategic Plans;
