USAID Advancing Food Fortification Opportunities to Reinforce Diets (USAID AFFORD)

Funding Agency:
US Agency for International Development

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a Cooperative Agreement from qualified entities to implement the USAID Advancing Food Fortification Opportunities to Reinforce Diets (USAID AFFORD) program. Eligibility for this award is not restricted.

The USAID Advancing Food Fortification Opportunities to Reinforce Diets (USAID AFFORD) activity is designed by the Bureau of Resilience and Food Security (RFS)1 , in collaboration with the Bureau for Global Health and Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance, to provide operational support to field Missions and other Operating Units (OUs) of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), contributing to the goals of the Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS) through the implementation of programming aligned with the Agency’s LSFF Results Framework. Reflecting priorities in the revised GFSS 2022-2026, USAID and implementing partners will use this activity to advance a comprehensive food systems approach, while proactively countering the COVID-19 pandemic and other global crises’ long-term effects on nutrition.

RFS has numerous investments focused on improving dietary diversity for households, women, and children. This activity complements those efforts by protecting households and families when they are unable to afford or access a diverse diet by providing a safety net of essential vitamins and minerals in staple foods and condiments. This activity will strengthen the ability of country and regional food systems to provide sufficient vitamins and minerals to those who are economically and nutritionally vulnerable, particularly during times of shocks and stressors.

Applicants can only submit one (1) application (there is no limitation on whether an individual associated with an organization can also submit an application). Applicants are directed to review the other requirements for applications specified herein, including, but not limited to, Sections D and E herein. Interested applicants from within Duke should contact as early as possible.
