About the organization

The FSN Network website engages community members through a food security and nutrition capacity-building hub where they share knowledge, resources, and promising practices.

Grant Description

IDEAL is a five-year USAID FFP funded activity that aims to address knowledge and capacity gaps expressed by the food and nutrition security implementing community. The goal of IDEAL is to strengthen food and nutrition security among FFP-target populations through promotion of systems-level approaches to improve the design, implementation and overall effectiveness of emergency and development food and nutrition security activities. It seeks to achieve this through four pathways: (A) capacity strengthening; (B) peer-to-peer learning; (C) small grants program (SGP); and (D) stakeholder consultations.


  • Prime applicants may be U.S. and non-U.S. nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), for-profit organizations, or institutions of higher education that can contribute to IDEAL’s strategic objective of promoting systems-level approaches to improving the design, implementation and overall effectiveness of emergency and development food and nutrition security activities. Experience with USAID or FFP funding is not required to apply.
