Here you will find grant opportunities offered by the following USAID-funded mechanisms: IDEAL, IMPEL, PRO-WASH, REAL, and SCALE. These grants fund small activities that identify and address knowledge and capacity gaps in food and nutrition security programming around the world. Grants can be awarded for approaches including tool development, conducting learning events, piloting new approaches, and disseminating knowledge to the global food security and nutrition community. Each funding opportunity has its own Request for Applications (RFA) and will have distinct goals and applicant eligibility.
