FCRA PROJECT: USAID’S DEVELOPMENT INNOVATION VENTURES!

GK Groups


Deadline: RTY
The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) is accepting Letters of Interest (LOI) for innovative ideas to pilot and test using cutting-edge analytical methods, and to scale solutions that demonstrate widespread impact and cost-effectiveness.
Stages:
  • Proof of Concept/Initial Testing – This includes testing for technical, organization, distribution, and financial viability. Key activities could include assessing user demand, willingness to pay, and correct usage of products and services, as well as documenting social outcomes and real world costs to implement the solution. Grant ranges from $25,000 to $150,000 to implement the activities for up to two years.
  • Testing and Positioning for Scale – The DIV grants support testing for social impact, improved outcomes and/or market viability, as well as operational refinement to build paths to sustainability and scale. Grant ranges from $150,000 to $1,500,000 to implement activities for up to three years.
  • Transitioning Proven Solutions to Scale – The DIV grants supports transitioning proven approaches to scale. This includes adaptation to new contexts and geographies. Operational challenges for scaling should be identified and addressed, allowing refinement and iteration along defined pathways to scale. The funding and support provide a runway for applicants to grow, while engaging additional partners who will help scale the project beyond DIV support, but for whom more evidence of success and track record are needed. Categories – A & B. Grants available for Category A range from $1.5M to $6M, and Category B awards range from $6M – $15M to implement activities for up to five years.
Eligibility Criteria
  • U.S. and non-U.S. organizations, individuals, non-profit, and for-profit entities, provided their work is in a country where USAID operates.
  • Applicants must have the potential to deliver great development impacts.
  • Applications can be made at any stage.
  • An applicant can submit unlimited number of unique LOIs.
  • If the letter of intent is selected, applicants will be sent the full application form with submission instructions. The selected full applications will be awarded funding to implement the activities.
