Colorado Seeks Community Food Access Program Grant Advisory Committee Members

The Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA) is recruiting members to form the Small Food Business Recovery and Resilience Grant Advisory Committee. The Grant Advisory Committee will help develop grant materials, qualifying criteria, and assist in the award process of approximately $6 million in non-competitive grants to improve availability of local, fresh food in areas of Colorado that lack access currently. The grants will help small food retailers and small family farms purchase equipment or reduce the cost of providing access to locally grown food, especially in low income, low access neighborhoods or rural areas. This opportunity is part of CDA’s new Community Food Access Program. Advisory Committee members will be asked to attend four 90-minute virtual meetings between April and May 2023 and then monthly 60-minute meetings through February 2025.
