USAID Development Innovation Ventures 2012-2013

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has announced a new funding opportunity under the new Annual Program Statement (APS) called “Development Innovation Ventures” (DIV) FY2012 and FY2013.

Through the DIV, USAID is seeking innovative solutions which are linked to solving a development challenge. These innovations should lead to transformative (as opposed to incremental) improvement to development outcomes that could ultimately scale across multiple developing countries and, ideally, multiple sectors in these countries. These solutions can include new technologies and new service delivery practices or novel or more cost-effective variations on existing practices.

DIV welcomes projects that find a new means to deliver an existing service or a new way to make an old model substantially more cost-effective. Applications may be considered for ongoing efforts provided they introduce a major new or innovative approach, dynamic, or element. Applications on all development topics and sectors are welcome.

    P.O.BOX 5595,

    We are a group of Kenyans who are interested in fish farming. We have 1.3 acres of land that we would like to turn into fish ponds. The area has water through out the year ideal for fish farming.
    One fish ponds need 30,000 to construct, 6,000 for wire mesh and 5,000, for fingerlings, 10,000 for feeds for eight months. I need to construct 12 fish ponds. A budget of 650,00 is needed for this project.
    We will be happy if our application will be considered.
