Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) runs an open competition for bold development ideas in any sector and any country in which USAID operates.
DIV can engage applicants in a number of ways. The common entry point into the DIV competition is the Expression of Interest (EOI) - a short concept note in which we ask applicants to outline their idea or solution to a development challenge. Interested applicants may review DIV's Addendum to the Development Innovation Accelerator, Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) and guidance on What We Look For before submitting a Letter of Interest for review. Selected candidates will be invited to submit a more detailed proposal at a later date.
Note: All communication and inquiries should be done through DIV@usaid.gov and applications should be submitted to DIVApplications@usaid.gov. Applications sent by any other means (including Grants.gov) will not be considered.
Additional resources for applying to DIV can also be found on these pages:
