Private Rapid Recovery Program Firms

Program Background


As a part of the SMART Project, Private Sector Rapid Recovery Program (PSRRP) assists SMEs and start-ups on getting back to business following recent economic crises, particularly the COVID-19 pandemic and the May 2021 War in Gaza. PSRRP supports selected client firms through Recovery Plans, which offer in-kind grants, trainings, and technical assistance necessary to get back to business.

  • In-kind grants provide replacement and repairs of critical equipment including industrial manufacturing machines and energy infrastructure.
  • Trainings involve courses on production methods, job skills, and climate-smart business practices.
  • Technical assistance involves advisory services, aimed at improving productivity, quality, business planning, access to finance, and marketing support.

All client firms are required to share least half the costs of Recovery Plans, with some exceptions for start-ups and client firms owned and/or managed by women or youth. When Recovery Plans call for renovations, repairs, or light construction, these items are funded only by client firm cost share.

SMART holds client firms to strict environmental risk mitigation standards. All firms are subject to screening, review, and monitoring procedures, and in some cases, the firms a required to implement changes to their business practices or facilities as a precondition to receiving assistance.

The goal of PSRRP is to help firms recover from losses during the pandemic and other crises through cost-shared Recovery Plans. The success of each Recovery Plan is measured in terms of:

  • Increase in sales and exports
  • Hiring of employees
  • Access to export markets
  • Participation of women and youth
