Community Food Projects

Community Food Projects fund proactive approaches to making communities more self reliant at maintaining their food systems while addressing food, nutrition, and farm issues. Grants are intended to help eligible private nonprofit entities that need a one-time infusion of federal assistance to establish and carry out multipurpose community food projects.

Projects are funded from $10,000-$300,000 and from 1 to 3 years. They are one-time grants that require a dollar-for-dollar match in resources. Approximately 18 percent of the submitted proposals have received awards during the history of this program. Funds have been authorized through the year, 2007 at $5 million per year.
