Notice of Funding Opportunity: Large-Scale Food Fortification
DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS: April 18, 2022
The USAID Advancing Food Fortification Opportunities to Reinforce Diets (USAID AFFORD) activity is designed by the Bureau of Resilience and Food Security (RFS), 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 USAID, contributing to the goals of the Global Food Security Strategy (GFSS) through the implementation of programming aligned with the Agency’s Large-Scale Food Fortification (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.
Under this activity, USAID seeks to safely and sustainably reduce micronutrient inadequacies and improve diets, particularly for women and children, through LSFF of staple foods and condiments. USAID AFFORD will achieve this goal by:
- Strengthening and extending the enabling environment and regulatory monitoring and enforcement of LSFF through the public sector.
- Expanding and sustaining LSFF, in compliance with national fortification standards, by the private sector.
- Strengthening the design, monitoring and evaluation of fortification programs, and holding the public and private sectors accountable through civil society.
- Garnering and mobilizing global commitment, leadership and resources to scale LSFF.
