Description: The Farm to School Grants are intended to support efforts that improve access to local foods in eligible schools. In this funding cycle, FNS anticipates awarding up to $3.5 million in grants. Letters of Interest from potential applicants are suggested but not required by May 18, 2012, while proposals are due June 15, 2012.
The two webinars will help explain to interested applicants the details of the two different grant types (Implementation grants and Planning grants).
- Planning grants are intended for school districts or schools just starting to incorporate farm to school program elements into their operations.
- Implementation grants are intended to help scale or further develop existing farm to school initiatives.
Target Audiences: K-12 SFA's, nonprofit private schools, charter schools, Indian tribal schools, State and local agencies, Indian tribal organizations, agricultural producers or groups of agricultural producers, non-profits, and others that participate in the National School Lunch or Breakfast Programs.
