State/Local Agency

FNS awards grants to states, the District of Columbia, U.S. Territories, and federally-recognized Indian tribal governments. The program is administered by state agencies such as a state Department of Agriculture or Aging.

The Farm Bill provides federal funding for the program. Federal funds support 100 percent of the food costs and 90 percent of the administrative cost of the program.
