Chemonics International, under the USAID Climate Finance for Development Accelerator (CFDA), seeks applications to mobilize private sector financing for technologies that advance climate mitigation and adaptation goals across the Caribbean region.

Although private capital is increasingly directed at the energy transition in emerging markets, it is not yet at the speed and scale needed to address the global climate crisis. In response, the Caribbean Climate Investment Program (CCIP) is seeking to accelerated the deployment of renewable energy (RE) and energy efficiency (EE) technologies as well as climate adaptation solutions across 11 Caribbean countries. Priority geographies include: the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Dominica, Grenada, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana, and Suriname.

Concept papers will be accepted on a rolling basis through March 31, 2024 at 11:59pm Eastern Daylight Time (EDT). Applications will first be reviewed 30 days after the publication of this Annual Program Statement (APS) and on a monthly basis thereafter, subject to the availability of funds.

Interested applicants are highly encouraged to join the Climate Finance Investment Network (CFIN). Managed by CFDA, the CFIN brings together climate finance stakeholders across a diverse set of sectors and emerging and frontier markets to partner with USAID. The objective of the network is to crowd in private sector climate financing through learning, partnership facilitation, and catalytic grants. CFDA will share all full and open solicitations, amendments, answers to questions, and other updates with contacts registered with the CFIN. There is no cost to join the CFIN and membership does not involve any commitment or obligation.
