FDPIR Self-Determination Demonstration Project: How to Apply for Round 2 Funds

On Oct. 18, 2022, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) published a Federal Register notice at 87 FR 63023, titled Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations Self-Determination Demonstration Project: Solicitation of Proposals for Additional Tribal Organizations To Participate. Through this notice, FNS is soliciting additional Tribal organization participation in the FDPIR Self -Determination Demonstration Project. The demonstration project allows Tribal organizations administering FDPIR to enter into self-determination contracts with USDA to purchase their own foods for the FDPIR food packages distributed to their Tribal members, instead of USDA purchasing the foods. This webinar included an overview of the demonstration project, and a detailed walk-through of requirements outlined in the recently published Federal Register notice.
