The Implementer-Led Design, Evidence, Analysis and Learning (IDEAL) Activity has announced the first Request for Applications (RFA) through its Small Grants Program.

The purpose of this request for applications (RFA) is to solicit applications that support the development of tools and topic-specific learning events to strengthen the capacity of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Food for Peace (FFP) grantees, and the broader food and nutrition security implementing partner community.

IDEAL is a five-year USAID FFP funded activity that aims to address knowledge and capacity gaps expressed by the food and nutrition security implementing community.

The goal of IDEAL is to strengthen food and nutrition security among FFP-target populations through promotion of systems-level approaches to improve the design, implementation and overall effectiveness of emergency and development food and nutrition security activities.

It seeks to achieve this through four pathways: (A) capacity strengthening; (B) peer-to-peer learning; (C) small grants program (SGP); and (D) stakeholder consultations.

Objective

The objective of this RFA is to solicit applications from food and nutrition security practitioners to support the development of products and tools, conduct events, and implement practical activities to improve the quality of food and nutrition security programming among FFP-target populations.

Successful Micro Grant applications will align with IDEAL’s content focus areas, the FFP Learning Agenda and identified gaps and needs expressed by implementing partners.

This RFA is not intended to solicit applications for research work done by Development Food Security Activities (DFSAs) during the Refine and Implement (R&I) period.

Content Focus Areas for IDEAL

  • Strengthening the quality and impact of emergency programming
  • Data collection and analysis for improved program design and impact
  • Adaptive management and application of learning
  • Integrated activity design and implementation
  • Sustainability and planning for exit
  • Social and behavior change
  • Equity, empowerment, social cohesion and social accountability

    Funding Information

    Final funding levels for each award will depend on content, relevance, quality, number of applications received, needs, and competing priorities, with a ceiling of $50,000 US Dollars, subject to availability of funds.

    Duration of Micro Grant Award

    The duration of an award under this RFA may be up to 12 months from the date of the award. IDEAL, Save the Children Federation, and/or USAID reserves the right to cancel this RFA at any time.
