Farm to School Grants
The USFS Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) has three types of grant funds (available on a competitive basis and subject to availability of federal funds) to assist eligible entities, through grants and technical assistance, in implementing farm to school programs that improve access to local foods in eligible schools. The request for applications is posted on USDA’s Farm to School website and available at www.grants.gov
The three types of grants are:
• Planning grants
• Implementation grants
• Supportive Service grants
For all three types of grants, the applicant must provide at least 25 percent of the total project cost. Authorizing language also states that as a condition of receiving a farm to school grant, each grant recipient shall cooperate in an evaluation of the program.
Three webinars will be offered so that applicants can learn more about this grant opportunity. Information on how to access the webinars is available on the Farm to School website
and will be distributed via the Farm to School E-Letter
