African Water Facility (AWF) grants are awarded to recipients and projects that fit the criteria below. Please check that your project fits these criteria before you apply for funding.

-Recipient eligibility

To be eligible to receive AWF grants or technical assistance, recipients must be regional member countries of the African Development Bank (ADB), political subdivisions or agencies working within these countries, or regional agencies or institutions concerned with water resource development in Africa.

Government and regional institutions

Typically, governments and regional organisations applying for grants will include:
Central or local African governments and municipalities
Regional, sub-regional and sectoral organisations such as Regional Economic Organisations (REOs), River Basin Organisations (RBOs), etc.

NGO and civil societies

For NGOs and civil society organisations to meet eligibility criteria, they need to be able to demonstrate credibility and a track record in the water sector and meet the following criteria:

Be a non-governmental organisation committed to the continent’s or national development priorities, with proposed activities that will be implemented in Africa

Be Africa-based or provide evidence of partnership with African institutions

Provide evidence of currently valid legal registration under the laws of the RMC in which it is operating; as well as evidence of a certificate to carry out business in the RMC in which it intends to carry out the relevant activity, if different from the place of legal registration
