USAID commits a substantial part of its funding to support NGOs. It has different NGO development programs to strengthen the participation of civil society to reducing poverty and enhancing its role in policy advocacy. Under its Global Development Alliance, it organizes agreements with NGOs on long-term basis. It has nearly 20% of partnership with faith-based organizations working to improve the lives of the people in developing countries. With US-based NGOs, it works closely by providing matching grants. There is specific NGO Sector Strengthening Program for building the capacities of NGOs in delivering services to communities. Under its Cooperative Development Organization (CDO) Program, it responds to the needs of cooperatives for support. USAID also provides technical assistance to NGOs under its Capable Partners Program.
