Increasing Access to Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH)

CDC Foundation

Grant Provider's 990

Agency: Foundation

GrantWatch ID #206474

Grant Description

Grants of up to $90,000 to USA nonprofit organizations to improve public health and sanitation conditions in eligible regions. The purpose of the program is to raise awareness of poor sanitation conditions and improve those conditions. Eligible projects must take place in priority geographic areas facing water, sanitation, and hygiene problems.

The CDC Foundation believes that community-based organizations (CBOs) are essential partners in the public health system and integral to ensuring meaningful impact on health outcomes. CBOs are a trusted resource within communities to improve economic, social, physical, and emotional wellbeing. CBOs, especially those led by people from racial and ethnicity minority groups with lived experience and an understanding of the communities in which they work, are vital to building local capacity, fostering collaboration, and creating feelings of ownership. Supporting these organizations also contributes to the development of local leaders and leaders of racial and ethnic minority groups who are better positioned to navigate through complex decision-making affecting their communities.

The CDC Foundation seeks to support CBO efforts to improve WASH conditions and/or awareness of poor WASH conditions in their respective communities. 

Awardees of this funding opportunity will participate in a larger learning community, which provides access to group learning opportunities, peer sharing sessions, materials, and relationship building. The learning community will be made up of a diverse group of community-based organizations working to address WASH challenges in their respective communities. Awardees will also have the opportunity and be encouraged to share lessons learned, success stories, expertise, materials, and solutions through their participation in the learning community.

Funded partners will be working towards the following overall project goals:

  • Increased awareness of WASH challenges and related illnesses, particularly among local governments/municipalities and marginalized populations, within affected communities.
  • Increased access to safe water and wastewater services which will in turn reduce the burden of diseases that results from poor water and wastewater service in marginalized communities.
  • Expanded capacity of CBOs to address WASH challenges in their respective communities.
  • Strengthened relationships between health department, private sector, and CBOs to more effectively address systemic WASH challenges.
