FDPIR Nutrition Education Grant Awards
FDPIR Food Distribution Program Nutrition Education (FDPNE) Grant Awards
Since 2008, FNS has been awarding funding for nutrition education projects through the Food Distribution Program Nutrition Education (FDPNE) grants. Indian Tribal Organizations (ITOs) and state agencies that are current FDPIR allowance holders (have a direct agreement with FNS to administer FDPIR) are eligible to apply for funds to conduct projects that provide nutrition information and services to FDPIR participants.
The SNAP Education Plan Guidance is the basis for development of FDPNE project requirements.
For an overview of the FDPNE Grant Program refer to the program fact sheet.
