Securing Water for Food: A Grand Challenge for Development Competition

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Government of Sweden invite eligible organizations to respond to Securing Water for Food: A Grand Challenge for Development Competition.

This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) is for a funding competition component of this Grand Challenge for Development, designed to address barriers to enable the production of more food with less water and/or make more water available for food production, processing, and distribution. The BAA describes the purpose of the program and the types of activities that it will fund; indicates the process for preparing and submitting proposals; and outlines criteria that will be used to evaluate the proposals. Through this competition, Securing Water for Food anticipates disbursing $15 million USD in award funding. Individual awards are expected to be between $100,000 USD and $3,000,000 USD depending on the type of funding requested. The period of performance for individual awards is up to three years; the actual period of performance for each award will be determined at the time of award.

Awards made through this BAA may be in the form of grants, cooperative agreements, contracts, and collaboration agreements, depending on the nature of the submitting organization and the proposal. 

Prospective Applicants that are unable to retrieve the BAA from the Internet can request an electronic copy by e-mail at

Issuance of this BAA does not constitute an award commitment on the part of USAID, nor does it commit USAID or any of its funding Partners to pay for costs incurred in the preparation and submission of proposals. Further, USAID reserves the right to reject any or all proposals received.
