U.S. African Development Foundation (USADF) is an independently established federal agency saddled with the responsibility of supporting African-led development that grows community enterprises by providing seed capital and technical support. USADF will invest $250,000 in community enterprises and organisations to create and sustain jobs, improve income levels and achieve greater food security. USADF grants range from $50,000 to $250,000 investments, allowing many groups to “right-size” funding to fit their needs and constraints.
The U.S. African Development Foundation hereby invites proposals for grant financing and local support, from African enterprises, cooperatives, and producer groups with innovative solutions that extend their own capabilities to increase revenues, create jobs, improve farmer incomes, and achieve sustainable market-based growth. Applicants must have proven ability to track, manage, and use internal and external resources to achieve growth.
Proposals will only be accepted from 100% African-owned registered agricultural cooperatives, small-scale producer groups, and agricultural processors working directly in the agriculture, horticulture and aquaculture sectors and their countries are listed here; Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, DRC, Guinea, Kenya, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Rep of South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
