The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Food for Peace (FFP) is seeking applications from U.S. and non-U.S. non-profit organizations for funding for program entitled “Development Food Assistance Projects” for Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia and Liberia.
Through FFP, USAID supports multi-year development food assistance projects to reduce hunger and extreme poverty in vulnerable populations by addressing the underlying causes of chronic food insecurity. It also provides emergency food assistance to address needs arising from natural disasters and complex emergencies often characterized by insecurity and population displacement.
It is intended to build resilience in populations vulnerable to chronic hunger and repeated hunger crises, and to reduce their future need for ongoing or emergency food assistance. The projects are designed

- Enhance natural resource and environment management;
- Combat under nutrition, especially for children under two and pregnant and lactating women;
- Mitigate disaster impact through early warning and community preparedness activities.

- Democratic Republic of Congo- $150 million
- Ethiopia- $110 million
- Liberia- $66 million
- To be considered for an award, the applicant must be a private voluntary organization (PVO) or cooperative that is, to the extent practicable, registered with the USAID Administrator, or an intergovernmental organization, such as the World Food Program.
- This includes U.S. and non U.S. nongovernmental organizations (NGO) as defined in Section 402 of the Food for Peace Act and as described on the USAID website under PVO Registration.
- In the case of a consortium, the applicant must be the consortium lead and must identify any other members of the consortium or individuals tied to the implementation of the project as described in the application, along with all sub-awardees.
