USADF Announces Major Grant Opportunity for African Agricultural Innovators

The United States African Development Foundation (USADF) has launched a new call for proposals targeting agricultural cooperatives, producers, and enterprises across ten African countries. This initiative offers a promising opportunity for organizations in Burundi, Cote d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, Mauritania, Nigeria, Senegal, Tanzania, Uganda, and Zambia to secure grant funding up to $250,000.

The USADF is seeking innovative proposals that can significantly enhance productivity and sustainability in the agricultural sector. This funding is intended to support projects that will expand organizational capabilities, increase revenues, and improve farmer incomes, ultimately fostering sustainable, market-based growth throughout the region.

Applicants interested in this transformative opportunity must submit their proposals by June 30, 2024. For more details on the application process and eligibility criteria, potential applicants can visit the USADF website at

This grant program is part of USADF’s broader commitment to empowering local communities in Africa, ensuring that they are not only participants but also leaders in their own developmental journeys. As these countries strive toward economic resilience and sustainability, USADF’s support could be a pivotal factor in transforming the agricultural sector into a cornerstone of growth and prosperity.

Organizations are encouraged to apply early and leverage this unique opportunity to impact their communities substantially and beyond.
