Detailed Description

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for funding to support the rapid transportation, delivery, and distribution of shelf-stable, prepackaged commodities to be distributed under the International Food Relief Partnership (IFRP) program.

Any and all IFRP activities would entail the transfer of commodities to implementing organizations and then the transfer of these commodities by the implementing organizations to the designated recipients for any allowable purpose specified by the Food for Peace Act.

There will be only one IFRP transport, delivery, and distribution grant review cycle during Fiscal Year (FY) 2020, and the three commodities available for distribution are: Harvest Lentil Pro, Enov’ Nutributter (LNS-SQ), and Enov’ Mum (LNS-PLW).
Issuance of this RFA does not constitute an award commitment on the part of USAID, nor does it commit USAID to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of an application. Applications are submitted at the risk of the applicant.

USAID cannot make final awards until funds have been fully appropriated, apportioned, allocated, and committed. While it is anticipated that these procedures will be successfully completed, potential applicants are hereby notified of these requirements and conditions for award.

Award Information

  • Subject to the availability of commodities and funds, under this RFA, BHA plans to enter into grant award(s) up to $175,000 of funding per application if proposing one commodity and up to $200,000 of funding per application if proposing two commodities.
  • The anticipated award date is on (or around) September 30, 2020, with a performance period of 18 months for all awards.
