KIWASH Grants Fund was designed to enable issuance of In Kind Grants with repayments to various categories of recipients who will facilitate the achievements of the project objectives.

Category 1:  Water Service Providers (WSPs)
Under this, KIWASH issues an Annual Program Statement to all water service providers in the nine counties. Through the APS, concept notes are received and projects identified for further screening with all applicants requested to submit full proposals for a potential grant facility. Additional concepts will continue being evaluated on a round basis every year of the project. All the proposed activities will increase water coverage through new connections to both rural and urban locations.

Category 2:   Increasing access to irrigation and nutrition services
Grants under these activities target farmers who apply improved technologies or practices.  These grants will also increase household consumption of nutrient dense, diverse foods through activities including, kitchen gardens, dairy and poultry production. KIWASH makes a competitive call for concept notes in one of the daily newspapers inviting profit making organizations with experience in development of smallholder irrigation. Such organizations will work with farmers to develop advancement of credit facilities through KIWASH repayable grants. This concept will catalyze funding from commercial institutions into agricultural lending and hence develop sustainable linkages.
