FNS invites State agencies that administer NSLP and SBP to apply for a competitive ART Grant for the purpose of identifying, reviewing, monitoring and training local education agencies (LEAs) that have demonstrated a high level of, or a high risk for, administrative error. Under this RFA, up to $3.8 million is available in fiscal year 2016 to fund ART Grants for oversight and training.
Two types of ART Grants are being offered:
- Planning grants for up to $75,000, and
- Implementation grants of up to $1,500,000.
States may apply for either a Planning grant or an Implementation grant, but not both under this RFA solicitation. The application submission due date is July 5, 2016.
