April 16, 2015

TIRANA--USAID and local NGO Assist Impact signed eight grant agreements today to support democracy in Albania. The grants seek to increase citizen’s participation in decision-making, support community building, and hold public officials accountable.

Assist Impact is currently implementing a three-year project called “Building Human and Institutional Capacities” which aims to support local NGOs, governmental agencies, and business associations to improve their capabilities and work more effectively.  Assist Impact, through a competitive process, has selected eight NGOs from across Albania.
