Agency for International Development
USAID’s Office of Food for Peace (FFP) is the U.S. Government leader in international food assistance. FFP manages two programs to support emergency food assistance efforts: the Title II program, which provides in-kind commodities and associated costs, and the Emergency Food Security Program (EFSP), which provides cash that can be used for local and regional purchase of food and other interventions such as food vouchers and cash transfers. Title II is authorized by the FFPA, while EFSP is authorized under the FAA. Both programs provide emergency food assistance to address needs arising from natural disasters, such as floods or droughts, and complex emergencies often characterized by insecurity and population displacement. More information on USAID food assistance programs can be found on the FFP website. FFP would greatly appreciate receiving consolidated comments on this draft APS. Please send all comments to both FFPEmergency@macf.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
