Implementing Partners are non-governmental or private sector entities (for-and nonprofit). Implementing Partners may provide leverage themselves (which cannot include USG funding from other sources). The preference is that implementing partners secure outside funding from a Resource Partner for the projects they propose to implement.
USAID/Ecuador, in particular, is interested in working with Implementing and Resource Partners from the private sector and civil society that will mobilize domestic resources for development. This includes non-traditional development partners such as private businesses, business and trade associations, foundations, financial institutions, nonprofit NGOs and for-profit development firms, and private educational institutions.
