Food for Progress 10.606 – FY 2021

Due: Mon, 02 Aug 2021

Purpose: Program Overview

The FFPr program provides for the donation of U.S. agricultural commodities to developing countries and emerging democracies committed to introducing and expanding free enterprise in the agricultural sector. The commodities are generally sold on the local market and the proceeds are used to support agricultural development activities.

Program Objectives

The FFPr program has two principal objectives:

To improve agricultural productivity; and
To expand trade of agricultural products.

Program Priorities

The program funding priorities of this NOFO are to support active FFPr agreements experiencing monetization shortfalls by providing additional current year commodity and or freight funds.
