Foreign Assistance That Works

The United States African Development Foundation is an independent Federal agency established to support African-led development that grows community enterprises by providing seed capital and technical support. 

USADF provides grants of up to $250,000 directly to hard to reach and underserved community enterprises that are ready to do their part.  This empowers those who are least served by existing markets or assistance programs to become a part of Africa's growth story. USADF connects community enterprises with capital and technical support organizations create and sustain jobs, improve income levels, achieve greater food security, and address human development needs.  

$23.6 M of New Community Enterprise and Technical Support Grants Planned for FY 2014
