This Request for Applications (RFA) for Bangladesh and Mali provides information on funding opportunities for multi-year development (nonemergency) food assistance programs.
Nonemergency programs are mandated in the Food for Peace Act.
The programs are designed to improve food access and
incomes through agriculture and other livelihoods initiatives; enhance natural resource and environment management; combat under nutrition; especially for children under two and pregnant and lactating women; and mitigate disaster impact through early warning and community preparedness activities.
They are increasingly associated with USAID’s efforts to promote resilience among populations facing chronic poverty and recurrent crises, and the Office of Food for Peace (FFP) continues to play an important role in the development and implementation of USAID’s resilience policy.
