Economic Resilience Activity

DAI Global, LLC, through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), is seeking applications from prospective partners to implement projects under the USAID Economic Resilience Activity (ERA) that support the development of a resilient, inclusive, growth-oriented economy in eastern Ukraine by strengthening both market systems and social networks. These activities will contribute to the economic stabilization of the region by supporting vulnerable populations’ participation in the economy and by providing relevant resources and training to improve human capital.

The USAID Economic Resilience Activity is a six-year activity (2018-2024) implemented By DAI Global LLC, aimed at improving the economy of eastern Ukraine in response to Russia’s aggression. ERA’s target geographic regions include the Ukrainian Government controlled areas of Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts, and selected cities in the Azov Sea region.

The USAID Economic Resilience Activity (ERA) promotes the development of a resilient, inclusive, and growth-oriented economy in eastern Ukraine. ERA empowers eastern Ukrainians to establish and grow micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs) in promising economic sectors, to innovate, and to expand to new markets across Ukraine, the European Union (EU), and other new international markets. ERA emphasizes the inclusion of internally displaced persons (IDPs), women, young adults, Roma, veterans, the elderly, and other vulnerable groups among its beneficiaries to ensure that they also share in the region’s economic success. ERA is also working with local and regional stakeholders to define a viable vision for the future of the region’s economy.
