USAID currently works with over 3,400 implementing partners in more than 100 countries around the world. The Agency achieves its mission by partnering with a vast array of organizations worldwide. 

While USAID has made great strides in diversifying its partnerships, the Agency understands that local and prospective partners still face various challenges when navigating the partnership process. Too often, organizations do not know where to start or what they need to do to partner with USAID due to complex federal government rules, regulations, and processes.

In April, the Agency hosted one of many “How to Work with USAID” webinars, this time featuring remarks from USAID Deputy Administrator Paloma Adams-Allen.

In her remarks, Deputy Administrator Adams-Allen noted that “…our partners, large and small, have been crucial to our positive impact over six decades” and that… “while we are proud of our accomplishments across six decades, we also recognize that we, and the countries and communities we serve, would benefit from having a larger number of partners and the new ideas, fresh perspectives, and expertise they bring.”

Advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility is at the heart of USAID’s work, including in how and with whom the Agency partners. WorkwithUSAID.org gives prospective partners a place to start, current partners a place to grow, and the Agency a place to build new partnerships.
