The ARRA provides $100 million for grants to school food authorities (SFAs) for equipment assistance. Funds are to be distributed to States based on the proportion of State Administrative Expense funds received. State agencies (SAs) must then make grants to SFAs on a competitive basis, with priority given to schools in which no less than 50 percent of the students are eligible for free and reduced price meals. We will be advising SAs of their funding allocations and issuing implementation information very shortly.
