This is a revision of a currently approved collection. The purpose of the Uniform Grant Application Package for Discretionary Grant Programs is to provide a standardized format for the development of all Requests for Applications for discretionary grant programs released by FNS and to allow for a more expeditious OMB clearance process.
This notice invites the general public and other public agencies to comment on this information collection. The Farm to School Census provides the only nationally-representative data available on farm to school participation and activities in the United States and has been previously conducted in 2013, 2015 and 2019.
The 2023 Farm to School Census will collect and synthesize data from a national census of school food authorities to better understand the characteristics of SFAs participating in farm to school and the scope and details of the activities they engage in ( e.g., local food procurement, gardening, agriculture education).
