Call for Comments - Potential Grant Competition for Fuel-Efficient Cookstoves in Kenya

The United States Agency for International Development and Winrock International are soliciting Expressions of Interest (“EOIs”) in support of a possible 18-month, $1 million USD (maximum) grant award (or awards).  The purpose of the award(s) would be to strengthen the private sector distribution of fuel-efficient biomass cookstoves in Kenya. This is not a request for applications for grant funding.  Rather, the role of this announcement is to share the draft program description in order to: (i) Gather feedback from potential stakeholders about the proposed parameters of the possible grant competition; and (ii) Identify potential applicants interested in developing proposals for future RFAs in this technical field and geographic area. Submitting an EOI is not a pre-requisite for responding to an eventual RFA nor will it confer any advantage.

If you are interested in this program description and the possible funding opportunity, please submit to Winrock a brief EOI following the submission instructions in Section 3 of the attached pdf (below) by January 11, 2013.  We encourage you to provide constructive comments regarding the draft program description, whether or not you intend to respond to a potential future RFA.
