Community Food Projects Competitive Grant Program

Applications are due October 7, 2022.
USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture is accepting applications for the Community Food Projects Competitive Grant Program. Three types of grants are offered: one Training and Technical Assistance grant up to $1 million over four years; Planning Projects matching grants up to $35,000 over 36 months; and Community Food Projects matching grants up to $400,000 over four years. Total funding is approximately $4.8 million per year. Private nonprofit entities are eligible to apply for Planning and Community Food Projects. The CFPCGP is intended to bring together stakeholders from distinct parts of the food system and to foster understanding of national food security trends and how they might improve local food systems. Understanding that low-income individuals experience disproportionate access to healthy foods, projects are to address food and nutrition insecurity, particularly among our nation’s most vulnerable populations.
