(f) No grant document, contract, contract, contract, memorandum of understanding, policy or regulation used by USAID requires religious organizations to ensure that they do not use funds or property for explicitly religious activities (including activities involving basic religious content such as worship, religious education or proselytization). Such restrictions apply in the same way to religious and secular organizations. All organizations participating in USAID programs (including a Prime Award or Subawards), including religious organizations, must conduct eligible activities in accordance with all program requirements and other requirements for USAID-funded activities, including those that prohibit the use of direct USAID financial support for explicitly religious activities. No grant documents, agreements, contracts, declarations of intent, policies or regulations used by USAID may disqualify religious organizations from participating in USAID programs because they are motivated or influenced by religious beliefs in providing social services or because of their religious character or membership. This course covers many rules and regulations related to USAID funding and aims to improve the ability of NGO staff to effectively manage their programs and maintain respect for donors. Whether you`re new to promoting USAID or have years of program experience, this highly participatory course gives you the skills and knowledge to safely implement complex rule guidelines.
