Development Education Program: USAID?s Development Education Program is authorized under the Biden-Pell Amendment to the International Security and Development Cooperation Act of 1980. The program, created in 1981 in response to the recommendation of the Presidential Commission on World Hunger, seeks to increase public understanding of the development process and the importance of developing countries to the political, economic, security and humanitarian interests of the United States. The Biden-Pell Development Education Program is a public-private effort designed to foster interest in, and awareness of, international development among U.S. citizens. USAID intends that the program emphasize the connection between domestic and international concerns. (For example, an agreement issued under this RFA might seek to use real life positive examples (stories) of progress or change in an individual?s life because of assistance rendered by a development project in order to illustrate the impact possible through these types of development programs and, therefore, why such improvements are in the U.S. national interest.) The Development Education Program encourages leveraging resources through partnerships between U.S.-based organizations that have a thorough understanding of the necessity for continued engagement by the U.S. in international development and other U.S.-based organizations that bring unique proficiency or skill in delivering compelling messages to a broad audience, such as membership organizations, trade associations, etc. The partner organization should also possess a strong and demonstrated interest in international development or foreign affairs.
