Title II Development Food Assistance Programs in Haiti

Funded by United States Agency for International Development - USAID
Location Haiti
Status
Deadline
Proposal due on 22 Apr 2013

This Request for Applications (RFA) for Haiti, specifically, provides information on funding opportunities for multi-year development food assistance programs. Food security is the cornerstone of the Title II program because “…enhancing food security in the developing world through the use of agricultural commodities…” is a policy of the United States as stated in the Food for Peace Act, which authorizes Title II food aid. Thus, FFP’s goal for multi-year development programming is to reduce risks and vulnerabilities to food insecurity and increase food availability, access, and utilization/consumption. Title II programs must target the vulnerability of food insecure individuals, households, and communities directly. Note that assistance made available pursuant to this RFA may be used to meet emergency/exceptional circumstances as provided in accordance with the terms of those awards and 22 C.F. R. 211.5(o). NOTE: As stated in Section VIII Other Information, 1. Environmentally Sound Design and Management and 22 C.F.R. 216 Compliance of the RFA, all applications must include an Initial Environmental Examination (IEE) that will be reviewed and given final clearance by the Bureau Environmental Officer (BEO) for DCHA. Clearance of the IEE will not be required prior to the submission of the application (and annexes). The BEO has indicated that USAID Mission Clearances for IEEs will only be required for those applications that have been reviewed favorably by USAID and recommended to receive a new Title II award. Given the potential size and complexity of proposed development food assistance programs, applicants need not strictly adhere to the suggested 10-20 page limit for the IEE. This IEE page limit recommendation may understandably be exceeded for complex program proposals.
