USAID is the world’s largest provider of international food assistance. For more than 50 years, USAID has brought hope and nourishment to the hungry corners of the world. USAID provides development food assistance to target the underlying causes of hunger and malnutrition. These programs aim to reduce chronic malnutrition among children under five and pregnant or lactating women, increase and diversify household income and strengthen and diversify agricultural production and productivity to build resilience and reduce the need for food assistance.

The attached document contains an overview of the pre-award meeting, responses to questions asked by participants, and a list of attendees.

Initial Environmental Examination
UPDATE 12/13/12: 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.
