Press release: USAID Announces $18.4 Million in Support of Cutting Edge Innovations
Wednesday, November 15, 2017
The U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) program recently announced eighteen new grantees. The grantee organizations — the majority of which are new to USAID — span seven sectors and nine different countries, from Brazil to Zambia.
Since 2010, USAID-supported DIV innovations have collectively impacted 25 million people living in poverty and resulted in $4 in funding from outside investors, lenders and philanthropies for every U.S. taxpayer dollar spent.
