USTDA works with strong partners in developing and middle-income countries around the world to advance important development objectives. The success of the USTDA program is due in large part to the dedication of the overseas project sponsors in host countries with whom the agency works to making effective use of USTDA assistance.
The agency awards grant funds to overseas project sponsors for a variety of activities, including technical assistance, training programs, or early investment analysis/feasibility studies. Our program responds to priorities that overseas project sponsors establish for themselves. If necessary, USTDA can provide assistance to help project sponsors to define their priorities.
USTDA's targeted brand of foreign assistance provides overseas project sponsors with access to U.S. private sector expertise in the pursuit of key development objectives. Grant recipients are required to select U.S. firms to perform USTDA-funded activities, however, there is no further obligation to procure U.S. goods or services once a USTDA activity is complete.
Overseas project sponsors are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate USTDA regional team to discuss specific project concepts for potential USTDA grant funding. Inquiries and project descriptions should be sent via e-mail to the USTDA regional staff that is responsible for managing Agency-funded activities in the foreign country where the project is located, as follows:
