HELPING USAID DIVERSIFY ITS PARTNER BASE
Who we are

USAID established the Partnerships Incubator to amplify the agency's external communications efforts to help diversify and strengthen its partner base, expand USAID’s capacity for partnerships, and help partner organizations work with USAID. 

Funded by USAID and Local Works, the Partnerships Incubator works with USAID headquarters and Missions to identify and engage new and local partners, provide training, and develop tools and resources to support the agency’s partnership goals.
