DCEO/Tahfeez Economic Opportunities Task Order is considering awarding grants to Iraqi NGOs/ Business Hubs to promote economic growth and prosperity in Iraq through developing a more competitive environment for broad-based economic opportunity and business expansion. The objective of the grant is to provide support to non-governmental organizations engaged in activities that promote a more enabling business environment, advocate for more inclusive economic growth, help build the capacity of business as a business service provider or are involved in similar activities.


The Iraq Durable Communities and Economic Opportunities (DCEO/ Tahfeez) is a five-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Chemonics International Inc. The Economic Opportunities task order strategy within DCEO/Tahfeez is to support the overall growth and strengthening of the Iraqi private sector. Economic Opportunities will achieve this through the following two objectives:

Objective 1: Firm-Level Support: Economic Opportunities will support Iraqi businesses to grow in ways that create new jobs and increase sales. Economic Opportunities goes about this through three ways: (1) direct firm support to SMEs on growth constraints, (2) opportunities for Iraqi enterprises to access cutting edge business incubation services and/or receive support that will accelerate the growth of those small businesses, and (3) investment facilitation services to ensure growth capital for Iraqi enterprises.

Objective 2: Improvements to the Business Enabling Environment: Economic Opportunities will support local business associations and networks in their work to identify shared impediments to growth, commerce, trade, and advocacy. These efforts will focus on improving the enabling environment for all Iraqi private sector actors.

This RFA falls under Objective 1/ (2) opportunities for Iraqi enterprises to access cutting edge business incubation services and/or receive support that will accelerate the growth of those small businesses
