 Pursuant to the Foreign Assistance Act of 1961, as amended, the United States Government, as represented by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), invites applications for the Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) program. 

The purpose of this APS is to disseminate information to prospective applicants so they may develop and submit applications for USAID funding. This APS: (A) describes the types of activities for which applications will be considered; (B) describes the funding available and the process and requirements for submitting applications; (C) explains the criteria for evaluating applications; and (D) refers prospective applicants to relevant documentation available on the internet. USAID anticipates awarding multiple grants as a result of this APS. 

To be competitive under this solicitation, applications must be fully responsive to all directions within this APS document. Note that USAID may not award to an applicant unless the applicant has complied with all applicable System for Award Management (SAM) requirements detailed in Section D. Applicants may submit an initial application prior to registering on SAM.gov, but the registration process may take many weeks to complete, and, therefore, applicants should begin registration as soon as possible. 

This funding opportunity is posted on www.grants.gov, and may be amended. It is the responsibility of the applicant to regularly check the website to ensure they have the latest information pertaining to this notice of funding opportunity and to ensure that the NOFO has been received from the internet in its entirety.

Issuance of this notice does not constitute a binding commitment on the part of the Government to issue an award, nor does it commit the Government to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of any concept papers, engagement, collaboration, co-creation, or full applications. Applications are submitted at the risk of the applicant. USAID reserves the right to fund any or none of the applications submitted under this APS.
