USDA Identifies 2024 Food for Progress Priority Countries

  |   Stakeholder Notice

USDA, through its administration of the Food for Progress Program, helps developing countries and emerging democracies modernize and strengthen their agricultural sectors. U.S. agricultural commodities donated to recipient countries are sold on the local market and the proceeds are used to support agricultural, economic, or infrastructure development programs.

Food for Progress has two principal objectives: to improve agricultural productivity and to expand trade of agricultural products. For Fiscal Year (FY) 2024, Food for Progress (FFPr) anticipates awarding seven new cooperative agreements, for projects of three- to five-years in duration. Priority countries include Benin, Cambodia, Madagascar, Rwanda, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, and Tunisia.

A complete list of the targeted regions within the seven countries is also available online.

When available, the FY 2024 Notice of Funding Opportunity and information on how to apply will be published on Visit the Food for Progress Program page to learn more about the program.
