USAID Locally Led Development Innovation
This Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) seeks opportunities to co-create, co-design, co-invest, and collaborate in the research, development, piloting, testing, and scaling of innovative, practical and cost-effective interventions to catalyze locally led development in developing countries. The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) invites organizations, companies, academic and research institutions, and investors to participate in bolstering investment through innovative approaches that both satisfy the objectives of locally led development and support sustainable development outcomes.
USAID’s Office of Local Sustainability, Bureau for Economic Growth, Education and Environment (E3/LS), created the BAA for Locally Led Development Innovation to expand the Agency’s work to empower local actors to lead priority-setting, decision-making, resource mobilization, management, and measurement of development efforts in their own communities. Specific opportunities to do so will be provided through Addenda issued under this BAA.
