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.

  • Combat under nutrition, especially for children under two and pregnant and lactating women;
  • Mitigate disaster impact through early warning and community preparedness activities.
