Local and Regional Food Aid Procurement (LRP) Program: Funding Opportunity Description: Under the LRP program, recipients use grant funds to purchase eligible commodities, support activities to improve the availability of commodity supply in developing countries, and pay for associated administrative and operational costs related to the implementation of field-based projects in a foreign country pursuant to an agreement with USDA Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS). USDA-FAS may give preference for funding to eligible entities that have, or are working towards, projects under the McGovern-Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Program (McGovern-Dole). Applications will be prioritized for the following countries: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, and Tanzania. The USDA LRP Program will focus primarily on development programs, although the rule also provides for the furnishing of food assistance through an emergency response (7 CFR § 1590), through a field-based project for a period of not less than one year and not more than two years.
