Program Accomplishments

Not Applicable.

Uses and Use Restrictions

U. S. and local Private Voluntary Organizations registered with USAID may submit proposals requesting commodities and cash to carry out food aid programs in food insecure countries.

The activities outlined in new DAPs should be in conformity with USAID, host government and multilateral food security assessments and strategies.

Coordination with USAID Mission development priorities for the associated countries is highly desirable; program and resources integration is encouraged.

However, no proposal will be disapproved solely because it is not integrated.

Proposals will be reviewed and considered eligible for approval so long as they do not violate the Bellmon Amendment or other statutory provisions, are consistent with the Food Aid Food Security policy paper, and address the host country's most serious problems in the areas of food access, availability, and utilization.
