Community Food Projects Competitive Grants Program

Applications are due by December 20, 2021.
USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture’s Community Food Projects Competitive Grants Program is soliciting applications to fund Community Food Projects (CFP) and Planning Projects (PP). The purpose of the CFP is to support the development of projects with a one-time infusion of federal dollars to make such projects self-sustaining. CFPs are designed to create community-based food projects with objectives, activities, and outcomes that are in alignment with this program’s primary goals. The purpose of a Planning Project (PP) is to complete a plan toward the improvement of community food security in keeping with the primary goals of this program. Public food program service providers, tribal organizations, or private nonprofit entities, including gleaners, are eligible to apply for a maximum of $400,000.
