FSOP funded programs are designed to help producers come into compliance with the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) new Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) rules. FSOP funds community-based organizations, non-governmental organizations, cooperative extension, and local, state, and tribal governments’ training and technical assistance programs focused on food safety.
For FY 2020, NIFA has announced the availability of $8 million for FSOP. Electronic applications for FSOP must be submitted through grants.gov. For more information on FSOP, see NSAC’s Grassroots Guide.
