Peace Corps Partnership Program
What is the Peace Corps Partnership Program?
The Peace Corps Partnership Program (PCPP) connects Volunteers and their communities with the private sector in the U.S. and around the world in order to fund community initiated and led projects.
Volunteers and their communities are invited to submit proposals to PCPP to obtain funding in support of these projects. In order to receive project funding through PCPP, the community must make a 25% contribution to the total project cost and outline how the project will remain sustainable after funding has ended. The Peace Corps then posts the project online to raise the approved amount of funds.
PCPP is a proven mechanism for supporting small community-based grants. Over the past ten years, PCPP has funded over 7,200 Volunteer projects in nearly every sector, totaling more than 19.8 million dollars in grant funds. Last year alone, PCPP funded 930 projects in 57 countries, touching the lives of 1.5 million people across the globe.
