The Association of State Public Health Nutritionists announced that 10 states and the District of Columbia have been awarded $90,900 each to strengthen their state-level Farm to Early Care and Education (ECE) initiatives for a one-year project period. The plans that were competitively selected for funding were submitted by Colorado, District of Columbia, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Vermont, and Washington.
