The National Institute of Food and Agriculture is accepting applications for the Food Safety Outreach Program. This program will complement and expand the national infrastructure of the National Food Safety Training, Education, Extension, Outreach, and Technical Assistance Competitive Grants Program designed to increase the understanding and adoption of established food safety standards, guidance, and protocols established under the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), with a sustained focus on delivery of customized training to members of the target audiences. Awardees will develop and implement food safety training, education, extension, outreach and technical assistance projects that address the needs of owners and operators of small to mid-sized farms, beginning farmers, socially-disadvantaged farmers, small processors, or small fresh fruit and vegetable merchant wholesalers. Grant applications will be solicited directly from community-based organizations, non-governmental organizations, food hubs, farm cooperatives, extension, and other local community groups. Approximately $4.8 million is available to support this program.
Applications are due by June 6, 2017.
