The Small Grants Program at U.S. Mission Uganda consists of two small-scale development funds.  The goal of these funds is to assist and encourage communities in becoming self-reliant, improve basic socio-economic conditions, decrease the impact of the global AIDS pandemic, and create opportunities for a brighter future for orphans and vulnerable children.

Programs
The Small Grants Office oversees two separate funds.  Together, these programs aim to assist in building a healthier, more productive society and generating broad economic opportunities for all Ugandans. 

  1. Community Grants Program to Combat HIV/AIDS: Provides support to people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS as well as orphans and vulnerable children.
  2. Ambassador’s Special Self Help Fund: Provides funding to help community-based organizations launch small-scale sustainable development projects for income generation and quality of life improvements.
