The purpose of this memorandum is to distribute funding allocations in the amount of $25 million provided by the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Agriculture Appropriations Act to State agencies that will competitively award equipment assistance grants to eligible school food authorities (SFA) participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). This memorandum also provides guidance on the specific terms and conditions for these grants, period of performance and timeline, funding goals, and reporting requirements.

These funds will allow SFAs to purchase equipment to serve healthier meals that meet the updated meal patterns, with emphasis on more fruits and vegetables in school meals, improve food safety, and expand access.
