That's also an arguement for not using a term that has a very specific carefully defined meaning. No matter how much you tell people you are using a different meaning, the base one will be presumed.

We are pretty much on the same page here. The overall text makes it clear that we are not restricting grants (even "baskets" would involve more than one (-: )
My simple solution would be a term in the glossary (or, as you say, a footnote).

Sam, In my mind, ANY term is likely to have some
problems, so I agree that we need to pick a term
but then qualify what we mean. In most cases
where we use the term, we also qualify or expand
it with expressions like :under-represented
countries" or "underserved populations"

As has been pointed, where we are targetting such
populations, we are also aiming at disadvantaged
populations that may reside within a higher-income contry.

So pick something, but then with a foot note of
more formal definition make it clear what we mean.

Also note that we are not RESTRICTING grants to
such groups but merely targeting them.
