About the RFA

IDEAL is inviting organizations engaged in emergency and development food and nutrition security programming to apply for an ARA. IDEAL will award up to five ARAs, each with a maximum value of $300,000 US dollars and a period of up to 24 months. Research funded by this RFA will advance knowledge and address knowledge gaps around strategic integration (sequencing, layering, and integration) as described in the Food Assistance and Food Security Programmatic Learning Agenda.

In order to be considered for an ARA, all applicants must submit an application before the published deadline. Only one application will be accepted from each implementing organization or federation. All ARAs must be implemented as partnerships between a food and nutrition security implementing organization and an established research team from a Higher Education Institution or other research institution.
