These GusNIP Produce Prescription Program (PPR) awards are part of the USDA American Rescue Plan Act funding. The Produce Prescription Program supports projects that demonstrate and evaluate the impact of fresh fruit and vegetable prescriptions. The goals of the program are to increase procurement and consumption of fruits and vegetables, reduce individual and household food insecurity, and reduce healthcare usage and associated costs. These PPR project enhancement awards provide additional funding to existing produce prescription projects to add to their original scope of work by expanding the reach, breadth, and diversity of individuals currently participating in the project.
