The U.S. Agency for International Development seeks proposals for Development Innovation Ventures grants. Development Innovation Ventures supports breakthrough solutions to the world's most intractable development challenges by finding and testing bold ideas that could change millions of lives at a fraction of the usual cost.
DIV welcomes applications from U.S. and non-U.S. organizations, individuals, and nonprofit and for-profit entities, provided their work is in a country where USAID operates.
Examples of innovations that USAID/DIV is likely to support include:
-- Behavior-change approaches drawing on insights from psychology and behavioral economics.
-- Solutions that advance equality between females and males and that empower women and girls to participate fully in and benefit from the development of their societies.
-- New methods to reduce absenteeism among frontline health and education workers.
-- Testing proof of concept for a solar lighting system distributed by local entrepreneurs at a price/service point that induces wide adoption.
Proposals are accepted year-round.
