The USAID’s Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) has two stages of its application process. All applicants wishing to apply for funding from DIV have to initially submit a Letter of Interest (LOI). The LOI has to be submitted in the prescribed format only.
In the LOI, you need to submit information related to “the purpose of the project, summarize the project’s goals, and include financial information for the project among other criteria in the LOI.”
The submitted LOI will undergo review and approval process. If your LOI is selected, then your organization will be invited to submit a full application.
The Full Application form will be provided to invited applicants with submission instructions attached. The Full Application form requests additional and more in-depth information than the LOI.
The next deadline to submit the LOI is 15 April 2014. For more information, visit this link.
