THE DIV DIFFERENCE
DIV was started in 2010 with the principle that breakthrough development solutions come from anyone, anywhere, and at any time.
With no deadline or preference for specific sectors or geographies, DIV is an open door to USAID, especially for new applicants who have never received USAID support before.
Using a tiered and evidence-driven funding model, DIV takes strategic risks to build the most cost-effective and sustainable solutions. DIV empowers creative problem-solvers to test new ideas, build rigorous evidence of what works, and expand proven solutions to transform the lives of millions.
