Community Food Projects Grant Workshop flyerUSDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture is expected, Fall 2017, to issue a Request for Applications to its Community Food Projects Competitive Grants Program. The primary goals of this program are to:

  • Meet the food needs of low-income individuals through food distribution, community outreach to assist in participation in Federal assisted nutrition programs, or improving access to food as part of a comprehensive service;
  • Increase the self-reliance of communities in providing for the food needs of the communities;
  • Promote comprehensive responses to local food access, farm, and nutrition issues; and
  • Meet specific state, local or neighborhood food and agricultural needs including needs relating to:
    • Equipment necessary for the efficient operation of a project;
    • Planning for long-term solutions; or
    • The creation of innovative marketing activities that mutually benefit agricultural producers and low-income consumers.
